Tranquil Birthday Scene Card Tutorial and Video

Hello stamping friends! Long time no video, but I have one today. I actually shot a video for my last card, but was unable to publish it due to technical ineptitude difficulties. Luckily I figured out my mistake before I made this card. I used The Northwoods stamp set from Gina K Designs.

Here is the video, but if you prefer, there are step by step photos below. 

Trim and piece of white cardstock to 3 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches and sponge Sweet Corn ink.

Cut a small circle using Spellbinders Classic Circles SM and trim in half with scissors. Use the semi-circle as a mask, then sponge over it with Sweet Mango ink.

Sponge Edible Eggplant ink.

Sponge Bubblegum Pink ink.

Sponge Little Boy Blue ink.

Sponge Blue Denim ink.

Use torn sticky notes to mask top and bottom, then sponge center with Chocolate Brown ink.

Sponge along the top torn edge with Black ink.

Remove masks and add new mask over top. Sponge with Edible Eggplant. (or maybe that is Blue Denim. I said Edible Eggplant in the video, but now I am thinking it is blue. Sorry about that!

Remove mask and stamp tree, from The Northwoods. Don't apply ink to the bottom of the stamp or use a mask to keep that part from stamping.

Mask the bottom, then stamp the small row of trees using Black ink, but stamp off on scratch paper first to make the image lighter.

Use N7 Copic marker to make reflection in water.

Add BV11 and BV13 to give more depth to the reflections and opaque white gel pen to make reflection for sun. I used my Faber Castel Big White Pen.

Stamp sentiment with Black.

The main panel was layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and the card base is Little Boy Blue (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches).

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

P.S. Did you see Gina has a brand new StampTV Kit out today? It's called Journey of the Heart and it is fantastic!

Both the video and the photo tutorials are excellent. I followed carefully and really like both the choices of colour and how well you applied.

If I may add one comment, it seems you did not realise that the reflection of the tree in the water is upside down. The pointy end of the tree should be at the bottom of the picture.
