Friend Birthday Card using Funky Fossil "Stylish Stencil"

My friend celebrates her birthday next week, so I needed to get a card made for her.  I didn't really have anything specific in mind for her, but decided to start with blending shades of blue/green Distress Oxide Inks for the background, which happen to be her favourite.  I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feather and Blue Print Sketch inks.

For the text background, I used a large stamp with definitions of friendship, I bought the cling stamp second hand, but it could be Hero Arts?, which I stamped in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink, which worked well with the background shades.

For the main image, I have black archival ink through a Funky Fossil stencil called "Stylish Stencil".  I picked this image as my friend is familiar with the 60's, in fact I've seen a photo of her with a similar hair style to that of the stencil.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment using a "My Favourite Things" stamp from their "Essential Sentiments - CS137" set.
