Happy birthday card with Harrison

I'm so lucky, Harrison has arrived to my home, thanks to Susan Seabert and the Country View Crafts! And when he arrived I started to assemble his pieces and then create a card. That's what I made!

Harrison's background with the stripes and stars was made by me. For this, I took a 300 gsm watercolour paper and washi tape ( an IKEA one). I put the washi tape evenly spaced from one another to the watercolour paper. Then I inked with Distress Archival ink (Faded Jeans) the surface. I needed Archival ink because I wanted to use embossing powder after and I didn't want the powder stick to other parts than I wanted.

After that, I used the Shifter Stars layering stencil and white embossing powder to make white stars on the blue stripes. I skipped the area where I wanted put Harrison, nevertheless I embossed half stars to the edge stripes too.

I spattered my paper with diluted Antique Linen ink and Inked the edges with Vintage Photo Archival ink.

What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, Harrison Colorize by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Thinlits die, Circle Play by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Bigz die, Baggage Claim by Tim Holtz

Stampers Anonymous, Crazy Things by Tim Holtz (CMS236)

Stampers Anonymous, Shifter Stars layering stencil by Tim Holtz
