Chinese Lantern Happy Birthday

This is a beautiful stamp by Magenta DT member Carole Dion! I absolutely could not wait to play with this one. This card is featured on the Magenta blog today.

I cut a small and large panel out of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I like this particular watercolor paper because it's white. For the larger panel I used the largest die in the Lawn Fawn LF768 Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. For the smaller panel I used Die-namics MFT-470 Horizontal Stitched Strips. 

I stamped the gorgeous Chinese Lantern image on the small panel and the larger panel with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I was able to stamp them in exactly the same place by using the MISTI stamping tool.

I tapped Nuance colors into a palette and added a few drops of water mixed with Perfect Pearls powder for some shine, and started painting. This image was just a joy to paint. I painted just the edges of the image under the small panel.

I colored around the painted image with a Copic C1 marker for shading.

This Happy Birthday sentiment is one of my favorite Magenta Happy Birthday stamps. The font is beautiful and it fits perfectly on a card. I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. Both the small and larger panel were matted with Stardream Bronze cardstock.

I applied some sequins for bling using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive.
