Fairy Happy Birthday

Well my friend t'over pond got her card yesterday so I can safely blog it now. I liked it when I made it but now I will probably go all weird and not like it IYKNWIM. Still I like to share the triumphs and the dodgy if everything was spectacularly gorgeous that leaves no room for improvement and just where would be the fun in that!

So here is the card. My friend likes fairies but more the funky fairies well here is her fab shop - Believe in Fairies - and you can see for yourself what I mean.

I found the image as part of free decoupage but I knew that for my friend decoupage isn't quite her "thing" so instead of printing the decoupage on paper I printed it off on acetate and chose a DCWV cardstock from the neutrals that highlighted the mottled background paper that I had gotten out of the DCWV Rockstar pad and the blue from the neutrals highlighted the blue in her skirt. The teal blue is from the DCWV brights - I think it does go together - I have to say IRL it doesn't contrast as much. The "Happy Birthday" is stamped - colored over with Sakura souffle black pen and then stamped again with Archival Ink - jet black. The effect is that the "Happy Birthday" is shadowed and the shadow is glossy and raised IRL so when the light reflects in a certain way... well you will just have to trust me or try it out yourself! LOL
