I love the look of linear pattern stamping and think the horizontal (coffee cups) and vertical (cupcakes) stripes emphasizes the linear look. I used an acrylic block and grid paper (instead of a Misti) to hand stamp the images (Altenew Tea Time).
The coloring went very fast as I only used four colors and no blending:
N1 to outline
Being a birthday card, I wanted to add a cake (Jane\’s Doodles Party Time) to the Sentiment (SSS Brush Stroke Messages). I mounted on a grey card, adhered a white insert inside and added a \”celebrate\” sentiment.
