Birthday Wishes

Greetings!  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I truly appreciate your visit and comments.  Today, I am sharing with you a card I made for the new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme this time is " to create a project that requires the use of a heat gun." 
For my own project, a birthday card for my granddaughter, I began by spraying Spun Sugar Distress Spray Stain onto an 8 x 8 inch card base.  I used my heat gun to dry the ink before overspraying with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Spray Stain so that the colors did not change.  The images and sentiments were stamped onto scrap card with Ranger Archival Ink in Black and were heat set with my heat gun.  The images were water colored with Distress Markers and Ranger Liquid Pearls and Stickles were added.  A seam binding bow completes my card.  I hope you will stop over at FSC to see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you and then consider submitting a piece of your own for a possible chance to win a gift card for $20 from our gracious sponsor, FlonzCraft.  Please remember we are a stamping challenge, so stamping needs to the focal point of your piece!
Thanks again for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne. It is amazing how often we use a heat-gun without even thinking about it! Your grandie will have a beautiful keepsake with this gorgeous card!!! Totally gorgeous.

That's so pretty, Yvonne - perfect ice cream colours, it looks good enough to eat! I'm a heat gun junkie. I didn't take it with me when I was working away, and it wasn't until I didn't have it that I realised how often I reach for it!
