Today's card was a fun design put together quickly based on the sketch from Just Add Ink (#187) and the fun, vibrant color combo from ColourQ (#211). I used grid paper to stamp my row of candles and space them properly. By using the grid paper, I was able to stamp one colour at a time and leave the right amount of space in between to come back later with the second and third colour of ink. It saved me the trouble of cleaning my stamp every single time and do one colour of ink at a time instead. A little dab of Dazzling Details was added to the flames to make them sparkle.
The sentiment, which comes from the same stamp set (Cycle Celebration) was stamped twice - on Whisper White and on Lucky LImeade cardstock - and embossed with black powder. The oval sentiment was handcut and glued in place with Dimensionals on the white label, which was punched with the Decorative Label. The stripes were colored in with Stampin' Markers.
