Say it with Text

Just a quick card today, inspired by the CAS-ual Friday Challenge blog here, for a card focusing on text.

To create this card, I cut the Phrase 'Happy' from funky foam using a Sizzix die and also cut a mask at the same time.

The letters were then masked and airbrushed with Copics B23, YG21 & BG23.  Each letter was then over-stamped as follows using memento inks Pear Tart and Penny Black's Zig Zag from 'Puzzle Parts' 30-114, Teal Zeal with the leaf from 'Flowers Sweet' 30-096 and Paris Dusk with one of the scrolls in 'A Little Bird' 30-102.

This was then mounted onto white card and the word Birthday from 'Round and Round' 30-112 stamped in Paris dusk ink.  The card was then matted and layered onto Penny Black Mix and Match Card Stock 'Clear Skies' 10-003 & 'Fern Green' 05-001 and sequins added to finish off.

Hope you are having a HAPPY week!

Hugs Cathy

I love this colour scheme, Cathy, great for a male card. I like the way you've stamped over the big letters.

It's ages since I've used Funky Foam - this is a splendid example of how effective it can be.
