Barbara Gray stamp and Distressed Ink Pens

Hi everyone,

As I've already posted my Easter card this is a Birthday card for a friend at Church.

The stamp is one of Barbara Gray's, as I love DL cards this worked well. I inked it up using two of the new Tim Holtz distressed pens, worn lipstick and pine needles, which made it easy on the fine artwork. Stamping onto thin white card I then used a water pen and pulled in the ink to colour the image.
Cutting this out using spellbinders deckle edge and a second layer in coordinating pink also decked edge I layered them onto green pearlised card with white flourishes wrapped around then onto a white DL card. I finished the flourishes off with mini gems and to complete the card made Happy Birthday sentiment layering as main image.
