Paradise Palms Birthday

Hello stampers,
     Don't you hate it when you have just finished your stamped piece & as you are closing the ink pads up they wobble but you catch it before they land on your project but didn't think to check your fingers for ink before touching said piece? 😧 Yep that's what I did last night & then gave up to redo it this morning, good thing though is that I still had enough room to be able to cut the area off instead of having to redo it. So that was the not-so-fun part of this card. EEK!
     I wanted to do a night sky scene so I chose to use the Paradise Palms Stamp Set. I started with a Basic White Cardstock piece, stamping the sand/rock & palm trees using Memento Black Ink. Next, I used a post-it note that I had punched out using a retired circle punch (we now have some masking paper that can be used for this purpose as well.) I then took my Blending Brushes first with Orchid Oasis Ink then Starry Sky Ink & slowly blended them around the masked area all the way down to the sand/rock area. For the sentiment, I used the same set with Memento Black Ink. Once I was done, I layered the stamped piece on top of Basic Black Cardstock. For the next layer, I used Orchid Oasis Cardstock & embossed it using the Bark 3D Embossing Folder, which was then placed onto Starry Sky Cardstock to finish the card.
