More Peachy Summer Flags!

Today's Bubbly Funk card uses the same combo as the card I posted yesterday - it seems I can't get enough of this stencil and these pretty, peachy shades!  

I taped the stencil directly onto the card blank and masked to leave three rows of bunting and a blank section at the top.

I cut up a dried baby wipe to make some mini applicators (rolled up the strips then folded in half to give a shape like a very small dauber) and used one for each of the chosen ink colours, rubbing the ink randomly over the stencil and building up the colours until I was satisfied with the colour distribution and depth.
 I think it looks a bit like raspberry ripple ice cream!

I stencilled some extra flags on scrap card in the same way to cut out and make the bunting for the top section of the card.
Next I created the happy birthday sentiment for cutting on my Silhouette Cameo.  There are several layers of the words cut in white card, then one cut in a matching peach shade of Bazzill card - I suppose I could have used ink on the top layer if I were a more careful and accurate inker-upperer!

The stencil and inks I've used for this card, and the one I shared here yesterday (please scroll down to see that one too) came from the Bubbly Funk shop - which sadly is closing at the end of this month :(

Gorgeous, those peachy tones are beautiful and you're right it does look like ice cream. I love yesterday's card too, both so different. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
