Happy Birthday Card by Pam Bray

Hi it is Pam today on the blog....I know you thought I left the team but as a designer of stamps, chipboard, stencils, and mask for SinCity Stamps I have been asked to do some guest spots....so today I would like to share with you my Happy Birthday Card....
Do you ever wish you had the perfect background for your card ... well today I am gong to share with you how to make one....I started with the Natural Beauty Stamp Set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped it on a scrap piece of paper prior to stamping on my white card base....this will give a muted look to the image. 
Re-stamp on the white card stock with the Natural Beauty flower...this time don't stamp on the scrap paper but right on to the white card stock so the images will be darker.
 I colored the background and flowers in using my Copic Markers.....
Make sure to stamp one extra Natural Beauty Flower on scrap paper, color it in with markers and fussy cut out....
 Place the fussy cut flower on to the top of you finished card base that has been stamped with the Happy Birthday image from my Fall Collection 2 Stamp Set. 
I hope you will try making your own backgrounds...remember you can use any markers or watercoloring pencils to color SinCity Stamp images in. Make sure to check out the SinCity Stamps Store and check out the stamps, stencils, chipboard, etc. Don't forget the SinCity Stamps Blog for fabulous inspiration from the new Design Team Hugs Pammejjo
