Enjoy the Fuss & a TAWS Giveaway!

Hi everyone! I have a brand new The Alley Way Stamps card for you today using 2 stamp sets from our January release.


Supplies
The Alley Way Stamps: Oogles stamp set
The Alley Way Stamps: Cake Day stamp set
Versamark ink

Distress ink pad: Festive Berries
WOW! Embossing Powder: Metallic Silver Super Fine (WC05SF)
Bazzill cardstock: 

I followed the awesome sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! #105 for my layout and the colour combo at Color Throwdown #324 for my colours:

      

I would also like to enter this into the new Less is More #206 challenge which is "One Layer".

I took a 105x148mm piece of Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock and masked 18mm in from each edge. I then inked the remaining rectangle with Festive Berries distress ink, trying to graduate the colour from dark to light. Once the ink was dry, I removed the mask and heat embossed the cute star banner from Cake Day.  I stamped the tallest monster from Oogles in black ink and stamped the teeny tiny birthday cake from the same set in his hand.  I then stamped them again onto my Copic colouring paper, coloured them, then cut out the coloured pieces and glued them onto the stamped images.  (I could have stamped the images and masked them before inking the background, but I prefer to do it this way, as I can then correct any mistakes easily).  Finally, I stamped the "ENJOY THE FUSS" sentiment from Cake Day, added some black enamel accents, and it was done!
