Fresh Squeezed Stamps Birthday Bash Card



Fresh Squeezed Stamps is celebrating their birthday this week, and they're running a birthday card challenge.  I thought it would be a great opportunity to ink up one of my FSS sets that I haven't gotten to use yet as well as knock out another card for Andrew.  I thought I had a little cushion on the birthday cards, but he apparently had to hand out five of them on Monday!

I used On Trend 2013 for this card.  I was kind of going for the bokeh effect, but I think the darks are a little too dark.  Basically I chose colors of ink and stamped the three circle sizes in first, second, and third generation.  I like how it looks, but I think my bokeh needs work.  If I do it again, I will probably try just using second and third generation stamping.

Anyway, thanks for coming by, hope your week is going well!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - Colonial White and Pacifica cardstock
Stamps:  FSS - On Trend 2013
Ink:  CTMH - Dutch Blue, Smoothie, Creme Brulee
Other:  Tombow - Mono Adhesive
