Can you tell that I've been getting in more time than usual at my craft table lately? Ahhh, how I love May! Spring semester is over so I'm not teaching until I start a summer course in July... the boys are still in school. That means mama has a quiet house to herself! :) So I'm still working on inking up some of my newest stamps, and my nephew's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. So I used the MIM: Selective Inking technique again on this card, with the new Boy Basics: Out of this World stamps and die:
I inked the countdown number strip only down to the 4, and then used the larger "3-2-1- blast off!"sentiment to finish the countdown. The "it's your day" is from Fillable Frames #8 and is stamped on a banner die-cut. I loved coloring that cute little rocket ship and flame tail with Copics!
I also finished the inside, using a stamp from Birthday Tags. I liked that the stars tied in with the stars on the card front, and added some more stars from Out of this World (ok, maybe I went a little overboard... I don't think my nephew will notice, lol!).
Of course, the rocket & flames are popped up on the front, which I think really adds movement. I also embossed the Enchanted Evening front panel and added a border-punched strip along the bottom.
Thanks for looking!
