Funky Hand web site. I have used one of the Lilac backing-papers from their 'The Funky One' cd-rom. The paper compliments the polkadot ribbon quite well. My card topper was made using my favourite technique, emboss-resist. The Bird image was first stamped onto watercolour paper using Staz-on black and dusted very quickly with clear embossing powder. After treatment with a heat gun, I then coloured the stamped image by mixing some water based inks onto an acrylic block and spritzing the inks with enough water to cause the inks to run together. The embossed area resists taking up the colours when I press the watercolour paper, image-side down, onto the block. I love this technique as the colour combo results are never the same and every image is a pleasant surprise.The embossed areas have a nice sheen which helps the image pop up. Sadly the photo does not show this sheen very well. Once dry, the bird image was mounted onto layers of black cardstock and another panel of the same backing-paper. The sentiments were stamped with Staz-on black. 'It's your Birthday' was stamped onto a scalloped Lilac circle using a Stampin' Up scalloped punch and Hero Arts stamps.
