Hi everyone. I’ve got another birthday card today, this time featuring Bowl of from Mo Manning. The image comes with separate images to put in the bowl, I chose hearts for my card today.
I’ll admit, I struggled putting this one together. I had a stray pink Copic streak on the left side of the image, and no matter how times I used my blender on it, it was just too stubborn to go away. I decided to cut it off, I wasn’t about to redo the entire image. I sort of had a plan, but that didn’t really work, so I wound up diecutting a scrap piece of 7 Dots Studio patterned paper to go behind my image.
I used the same patterned paper for my sentiment strip, which I stamped with a Norsk Stempelblad AS stamp and then diecut using one of the Fishtail Flag Frames dies from My Favorite Things. The pink patterned paper behind the sentiment strip is actually the other side of that same patterned paper. I thought it fit my Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet cardstock pretty well, in addition to the pink in the actual image. The pink cardstock is debossed with an impression plate from Papertrey Ink and then diecut with a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things. I also added some enamel dots in coordinating colors, as well as a couple of scraps of some doilies I had in my stash.
I popped up the entire image using foam tape – lots of it, I’m not shy when I use foam tape.
