Forever Blossoms Birthday

Good morning all! 27 degrees and sun to start the day in Nebraska. Melt snow melt!! I had some play time this weekend and came up with this card using an old technique inspired by the color challenge at Inspire. Create. Challenge . To be honest, I started some garden seeds and went looking for tape, either masking or painters to mark the rows. Didn't find any in the garage (and I didn't stay long it is too cold!!), but there was painters tape in the stamp room! So a painters tape card!!

based on this color challenge, Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Sahara Sand and Basic Black.

This is more color than I've previously done with this technique but it's also a larger stamp. You can see previous cards I've done here and here. To do this, tear off several pieces of painters tape that will go the length of the pad. The length of the pad is almost as wide as the card. I started with the center color, Sahara Sand. Press the tape gently down on the pad, run your finger over it gently so you aren't picking up ink that will smudge. Release the tape from the pad and gently press down on the Very Vanilla cardstock. Use different tape for Blushing Bride and stack above and below the Sahara. I did use the same piece twice here. And again for the Rococo Rose on the top and bottom. Be gentle with pealing the tape off the cardstock! Painters tape is designed to not be super sticky but you never know! Next I added the flowers from Forever Blossoms and the Happy Birthday from Peaceful Moments. I went over the entire flower with Stella, added Fine Art Ribbon and layered the card together. Basic Black accent layer, Rococo Rose base. Final accents, rhinestones that I added a touch of Rococo Rose to with my Stampin' Blend.
