Birthday card with Harrison - red stripes

Hello again, I'm here with a new Harrison card. After I finished the card with the blue striped background, I wanted to make another one with red stripes. 

Here you can hop to my earlier blog post with Harrison and the blue stripes. And if you click there you will see that I changed not just the colours but the "how" too.

For making the stripes, I used again washi tape but instead of Archival ink, here I used Distress paint (Candied Apple).

Then I chose one of the stars from the Sizzix Bigz Crescent Moon&Stars die. And I cut out plenty from that. This one:

And I started to glue them on the stripes. For this I used the Star Shifter stencil as a ruler, to know where to place the next star. I'm not left handed, this is just for the photo, as the iPhone was in my right hand :-D

When I was ready with the background, I spattered the surface with diluted Antique Linen ink and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Archival ink.

For the gift box, I used the Baggage Claim Bigz die and I coloured the base with Chipped Sapphire Oxide ink. I inked the edges with Ground Espresso. Later I spattered with Picket Fence paint and with a fine flat brush because I wanted tiny spatters.

The top was coloured with Broken China Oxide ink and for the edges I used Vintage Photo.

The "ribbon" of the box was coloured with Fossilized Amber.

Sizzix Bigz die, Crescent Moon&Stars
