Birthday Cards pt2 - With Karyn Schultz!

 Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have 6 birthday cards to share with you made using the new Wild At Heart Collection available from Bee Arty.
I cut 6 pieces of 9cmx13.2cm 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock. Then I stamped around/on the edge of each using the Wild Leopard stamp set and the 1928 Fragment and Text stamp set and Black Archival ink. These form the mats on the cards.

I wanted to add colour to the stamped backgrounds so I mixed a Velvet Colour Shimmer Dust with Mocha Colour Spray to give a dusty pink shade to match the Wild at Heart papers. The pic below shows on the RHS Velvet only and LHS Velvet+Mocha.

I added a colour wash (using a wide paintbrush and plenty of water) of Velvet+Mocha to 3 of the stamped backgrounds (in different intensities) and Mocha to the other 3.
I made 6 card bases measuring a finished size of 14.5cmx10.5cm using 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock. I added a colour wash of Velvet+Mocha to the front of 3 of the cards (in different intensities) and Mocha to 3 of them.
Then I used the Lost Symbol A6 stencil and some of the colour wash applied with a sponge on the card fronts (just around the edges).

Below you can see the stamped card on the left and the stenciled card front on the right for each of the 3 Velvet+Mocha cards, for a lighter colour I added more water to the wash.

Below you can see the stamped cards and the stenciled card fronts for the 3 Mocha cards.
 I matted the stamped card onto the stenciled card front, then added a card cut from the Expedition Paper. I also added fussy cuts from the Roar Paper, as well as flowers from my stash. I stamped "Happy birthday" from the Embrace Change Collection onto White Cardstock and added to the card.

Wild At Heart has soft tropical vibes with versatile elements, and is designed by the talented Karen Yates. You will love this collection - the stamps, stencils and dies are not to be missed! You can subscribe to the kit here. Kits come with a paper pack, stencils, metal dies, stamp sets, embellishments and full colour kit instructions.
