The Stamps of Life: MORE Candles + A Tutorial Video!

Welcome back, friends!  I'm so glad you're here today!  I have another FUN birthday card to share with you, using products from The Stamps of Life, and I've used pointillism again to color my images!  I created a video tutorial on how to do this fun technique, so make sure to stop by my YouTube channel and check it out! It's also added at the bottom of this post, so that's an easier way to watch should you choose. :)  Take a gander at the card...

I started by creating the candles.  I stamped the images from the candles4birthday stamp set using Licorice ink and then colored them in with the pointillism technique.  I LOVE the fun texture that pointillism gives to lined images!  I then set them aside.

Here's the video on how to color with pointillism~

I stamped the sentiment, also from the candles4birthday set, with Licorice ink and punched it out.  I layered it onto a punched scallop and added some liquid pearls for texture.  This was added to the card base that had been embossed with the NEW Flower Power embossing folder and had baker's twine wrapped around for added color.

I then layered the candles behind the sentiment.  I adhered them using dimensional foam so that they would stand out from the background a little more.  I think this looks great!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your opinion in the comments below! :)

That's all for me today, friends!  Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by--I love it when friends come and visit!  I hope you take some time to create today and that you grab these goodies from The Stamps of Life, too!  See you soon--HUGS and happy stamping!
