I decided to try and make some paper to use with the gel press. I tried adding these colours and using MFT background stamps to remove colour. The main piece I used here has the MFT diagonal design background stamp showing in it. Not much of the lighter blue showed in this piece so I used another piece with lighter blue to do the stripe. I used cardstock with rose gold foil on it to cut the happy birthday die cut from. I lost the dot from the i so I used a gem. I turned the lines in the sketch a bit wavy and added them as gems. I added a little Victorian velvet distress stain to the edges of the background piece and the stripe.
I am also entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: No design paper.
