Basket of Birthday Wishes

The design team for the board this week at Tic Tac Toe Challenge has gone above and beyond in creating some gorgeous cards!  I encourage you to look at their inspiration.

I chose the top row across - scoring , basket, frame.  My scoring isn't decorative; it is the scoring for the fun fold card.  Recipients always seem to really enjoy stand-up cards, so I tend to make these often.

I colored the basket and pie with Copic makers; the background I blended with Distress Oxide inks.  Different coloring mediums require different inks, so I like to use MFT Hybrid ink.  It works with both water and alcohol based inks.

I also did a fair degree of masking on this image.  The basket and apples are two separate stamps and I wanted the background stenciled.  The basket was stamped first, then masked off and the apples were stamped.  I then masked off both to stencil my sky and grass.  This grass stencil from Lawn Fawn is super cool as it has both a stencil and a mask in one (note the mask on the top). 

I hope you will join us at the challenge this week!
