They Say It's your Birthday

Today, myself and some of the other PCP Super Nova's are celebrating Susanna Boyd's birthday with a Virtual Birthday Celebration Hop!

Inspired by this sketch on the Authentique Blog, I used papers from Authentique's Genuine Collection along with the Pondering Child stamp from La Blanche.  I picked up the stamp at the North Coast Creations Booth when I was at the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Milwaukee last month.  Currently the NCC Website is not up and running, but you can order the stamp by calling 1-877-451-4909.

Stamps - LaBlanche


The image is stamped in Ranger Black Archival on La Blanche Specialty paper, then colored with Ranger Distress Inks using Blending Nibs.  Once the image was colored, I cut the panel, so the image was slightly "out of the box", then sponged  Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink on the edges, blending towards the center of the stamped panel.  To embellish I added some Zva Creative Crystal Flourishes/Mini Roses, and  Eggshell Vintage Seam Binding that was tied into a Double Bow.

Details:
Stamps - LaBlanche Pondering Child
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Distress Inks Mustard Seed, Faded Jeans, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs, Tattered Rose
Card Stock - Black, Mustard, LaBlanche Specialty Paper
Other - Blending Nibs, Ink Blending Tool, Zva Creative Mini Roses/Crystal Flourish, Glue Dots, Eggshell Vintage Seam Binding, Becca's Peg Bow Maker, Dimensionals, Authentique Genuine Pattern Paper

In honor of Susanna's Birthday, we invite everyone to join in the hop and post a birthday greeting on each designers blog for a chance to win some blog candy. The hop runs through October 28th, with random winners being announced on the blogs with blog candy on October 29th.   If you'd like to play along and send Susanna a virtual birthday card, simply post it to your PCP photo gallery with the tag SBOCT22.
