Happy Birthday Stencil Background

I finally got round to using the Clarity Club stencil from June this year and used part of it to create this birthday card.

Die cut a frame ina piece of Clarity stencil card using the second largest nested square heart doodle aperture frame-its die.
Mask off inside the frame using low tack tape.
Lay the June 2023 Clarity club stencil (#109) into the centre with the leaves showing only. Draw round the leaves and into the apertures with a black Posca pen.
Colour in the leaves using black Pitt artist pen.
Replace the stencil and blend French Ultramarine Archival ink into the centre of the masked off frame.
Add the mini script stencil and blend Seafarer Archival ink through it in places.
Replace with the mini dot wave stencil and add further French Ultramarine ink through it in several places.
Replace with one of the small Mandala stencils and add Pink Peony archival ink in the same manner. Remove the masking.
Add Happy Birthday into the corner in Black Soot Distress Archival ink using the KISS Bijou ribbon sentiment.
Die cut the topper using the 6” nested squares die and a mat from Indian Summer companion paper using the corresponding picot die.
To finish, mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
