Happy Birthday ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Great Impressions Blog today.


I love all things Country so when I saw the Hat & Boots (E829) in the Great Impressions store I knew I needed to play with them.


First step was to stamp the Hat & Boots (E829) several times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Kraft cardstock. I then pulled out my Copic Markers to color each piece, fussy cut them out, and layer it back together with 3D Foam Squares and Mini Glue Dots. I wanted to create a 3D effect with the Hat & Boots. It's a little hard to tell in the photo's but it looks truly awesome in person.

I pulled the colors from the boots for the background, including the faux stitching around the edges, added some distress ink around the image, and incorporated some wood DP.

I am always in need of birthday cards so chose the Happy Birthday (C340) sentiment for today's card.

Here's another look at the Hat & Boots (E829) stamp ...

Copics: R29, R39, R59, R89, BG15, BG18 & BG49
