happy birthday, Cornelia!

It was my teamie's, Cornelia of Stempel Spass, birthday last week and a few of the STAMPlorations girls are wishing her all the best today!

Cornelia made some fabby cards lately using a stencil technique of inking and moving the stencil and inking again and I did the same but with Glimmer Mists in Lemongrass and Sea Glass.  The result is a watercolor effect which is super shimmery as you can see in the close up. And I used the current STAMPlorations sketch #10 but changed it up a little to incorporate a piece of German PP from Scrapbook Werkstatt. Thought Cornelia might appreciate that!  For those of you who don't know, she's German living in the USA and I'm American living in Germany :)   On the PP strip I repeat stamped a cut apart sentiment from VIGNETTE: Chevrons and Arrows.

Happy year, Cornelia and happy weekend everyone.

Supplies for happy day:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, PP Scrapbook Werkstatt
Stamps: STAMPlorations
Ink : Versafine Smoky Gray, Glimmer Mists
Tools: stencil Studio Calico
Other: washi
