New Barn Birthday

I really enjoy making birthday cards for people that reflect something that has happened in their life in the last year. I have a family member that built a new barn this year so that inspired this card.

For this scene, I started by stamping and coloring the barn with Copics. I colored over the barn with a Versamark pen and embossed with clear detail embossing powder (gotta use the "detail" embossing powder!). I brayered the sky. I sponged the grassy hills in using a torn piece of paper as the mask (been using the same torn piece of paper for years!). Finally, I stamped in the large tree silhouette.

Stamps: FireCracker Designs by Pamela Create-A-Scene (barn), SU Nature Silhouettes (tree), Papertrey Ink Faux ribbon, Hanna Stamps Things Hanna Would Say
Paper: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Early Espresso
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
Accessories: Versamark Pen, clear detail embossing powder, Stamp-a-majig

Enjoy!
