Stampotique - Humorous Birthday

Hi everyone! The new challenge at Stampotique is Humorous Birthday. I used SuperGirl (6019) and Numeric (7164). I had so much fun coloring up SuperGirl. I made her a bit of a funky style and gave her some lime green highlights in her hair. To go with the party theme I cut a party hat for her and added a tulle tuft to the top. Tucked behind her is some black plastic fibers that used to be made by Magic Scraps. 

I stamped the Numeric image repeatedly on the the background and embossed with Stampendous Lettuce embossing powder. I inked up the background with Black Soot Distress Ink. To grunge it up just a bit more, I laid down some drywall tape (Magic Mesh will work) and inked more Black Soot over the tape. When I removed the tape, I was left with a cool grid pattern. 

To finish it off I typed up a sentiment on the typewriter, inked the edges and highlighted the word "old" with a Copic. 

Be sure to stop by the Stampotique blog to see what the design team has cooked this week!

That sentiment is the best, and works perfectly with the numeric background! Awesome card, Wendy.
