Hello everybody, I am very happy to be here on the Hello Bluebird Stamp’s blog today sharing a card I made recently featuring the new Party Parade stamp set.

To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock and I masked off a line above which I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick.  I then moved the mask to above the original line and masked again only this time I used Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide.  I flicked some water splashes over the coloured panel and blotted them up a few seconds later to distress it.  I framed out the panel using the Gallery Frame #2 Die (just the outer part of the cut), applying it with dimensional foam tape to lift it up.

On Bristol Smooth cardstock I used Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil to stamp all the images from Party Parade.  I watercolour painted everything using the following Kuretake Zig colours – Light Pink 026, Haze Blue 302, Beige 072, Lemon Yellow 051, Green Shadow 049, Pale Orange 054, Blue Gray 092 and Brown 060.  I highlighted a few points with a white gel pen and die cut each element and arranged and adhered them to the scene using either a single piece of foam tape or for the foreground images on a double layer.

My card was finished out with a selection of different sized sparkling clear flat-cup sequins.

Many thanks for coming by the blog today to read, I do hope you are enjoying the new release and buying up all the goodies!

See you next time!
