Birthday Wishes from the Stars

Hello.  Gail from the design team here today with some more inspiration for the Rubber Dance colour challenge.  

I've used Bohemian Woman for my main image, Milky Way for the background and the sentiment is from Happy Birthday

I made a resist background by stamping the image from Milky Way with Versamark ink and embossing with white powder.  Then I gave it a watercolour wash with Worn Lipstick distress ink.  Any ink wipes off the embossing to give this pretty contrast.   

I stamped and embossed Bohemian Woman with black embossing powder.  I coloured her with distress inks, sharpies and a gold pilot pen.  I cut round the image and added a red mat.  The sentiment was black embossed on red card and I used a red card base.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you have time to join the Rubber Dance challenge and make a little something with these fun hot colours.  Hugz

All these stamps and many more are available in the
