Wheelie Special Birthday

Hi Friends:  Today's post is a birthday card using a new stamp and die set that I wanted to try.  I love these AI Wobblers!  Please see below for photos, process, challenges, and supplies.  Have a super day!

I started by stamping the images onto PRISM smooth white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I fussy cut the image, then cut the shaker image using the included die and attached it over the base image with the included mini shaker.  I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to parts of the image for a bit of sparkle.  For the base panel, I used a bit of watercolor paper, and colored the sky background and ground using Distress inks, then I added the shaker image to the panel.  I used the dies to cut the stars and "Zoom" from black cardstock, added them to the panel, then added some more Wink of Stella sparkle to them.  For the background, I used several sheets of the KI Metro Garden paper pad and layered the image over them.  (There's some machine stitching there for added interest/texture.)  I stamped the sentiment onto the KI paper using the Memento ink and cut it with a banner die & added it to the image panel.  I finished the card off with a few more black stars on the background strip.
