Studio Katia - Happy Birthday Wishes

Hi friends! My boss asked me to create a birthday card for his sister-in-law.

Ever have those times when you've kind of lost what kind of designer you are? Layers, more CAS, CAS but sophisticated? Yeah - that's me right now!

Anywho, I stamped the image in MFT Extreme Black and colored with Copics and colored pencils; the flowers were all coated with Clear Wink of Stella.

Once I finished coloring, I used a Tim Holtz mesh stencil to add some Squeezed Lemonade spots; I finished it off with a few colors of Nuvo drops and some washi tape.

I have MUCH better lighting at work BUT I haven't found the 'perfect' background piece yet; not thrilled with this, but for now, it'll  have to work! ;)

Thanks for stopping by; have a great week!


Stamps: SSS/Studio Katia Blooming Trio (looks like this is no longer available, but here is one EXTREMELY similar, Blooming Bunch), WPlus9 Modern Peonies (sentiments)
Inks: MFT Extreme Black, Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade
Papers: Designer paper (from my stash - same stash you have - HA); SU Real Red, PTI Summer Sunrise, Rangrr water color
Accessories: Nuvo drops, clear wink of stella, misc. washi tape, MFT Blueprints, Copics, Tim Holtz mesh stencil

  1. This is such an amazing card! I love the bold colors you used on the flowers. I also like how you structured this-- the florals with the polka dots and stripes. This came together perfectly and is a real stunner. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!


Thank you so much for visiting and taking time to leave me a note! I read every single one and *heart* hearing from you. Hugs, ~M.
