Fintastic Birthday Cards with Joy Clair

I am still loving the NEW Joya Clair stamp releases and this one is becoming a sure favourite. Does it feel like that with every stamp set? Yip pretty much. I often think what on earth will I use that set for – and then once I actually do, start colouring and stamping and creating it turns out that I am really loving it. This little shark right here is one of those…

The backgrounds used for these cards were created as samples in a Gelli Printing class. How amazing are they? What did I used you ask, well I used my pigment powders to create these magical effects in my Gelli Plate.
The stamped images were stamped onto my white technique cardstock in VersaFine Clair Nocturne and coloured using alcohol based markers.
The sentiment was stamped onto scrap white off-cuts and raised using foam tape for dimension.
And those magical white spots, well those are stamped bubbles, then coloured in with bleach/jik. The bleach reacts with the colour underneath and whitens out the ink colours to reveal perfect white spots. And then I also splatted onto the background with the bleach for a gorgeous effect. The happiest little sharks wishing someone a fantastic day!
For my second card I used the same coloured backgrounds with my Gelli plate but this background has more white space visible.
If you look carefully you can actually see some yellow sun rays peeking through. This was done on scrap papers where I misted yellow Mr Huey ink through a stencil for a background. And now this background to found a new lease on life with this stunning background.
My stamped sentiment was done directly onto my coloured background also using VersaFine Clair.
The apple was glazed using dimensional glaze for a bit of shine.
And here are my two stamp sets used for creating these stunning quick and easy cards.
