Happy Birthday Kim Costello - Paperbabe Stamps

Good Morning crafty friends, Today the Paperbabe Stamps Design Team have a special treat for you....

Today is Kim's birthday (aka Paperbabe herself). As a team we were conscience of the fact that birthdays in a lockdown situation aren't much fun, so we have put together a mini blog hop of birthday wishes for Kim.

Kim has a very special place in my heart, she welcomed me to her DT four and a half years ago, Paperbabe stamps was my first DT and I've been part of it ever since. I owe Kim so much, without her I dont think I would have had the confidence or experiance I have now, thank you for the oppertunity and for believing in me Kim.

I decided that I would make a Galaxy protrait to share today as they always feel so magical and I love a galaxy. I used the Female Face Dinky Stamp set and coordinating template for the torso and face to create my cute girl, I also used the Mermaid Hair template and chose to leave the hair white to contrast against the colourful sky.

To create the sky, I first of all masked the girl using all of the coordinating mask/templates and some removable adhesive. I then used water reactive inks from Spectrum Noir onto Watercolour card, I blended them using make up brushes and added lots of splaters of white, gold and glitter paint to act as stars in the sky.   I added sentiments using the Flourish and Grow stamp set, which I heat embossed in white.

It's so hard to capture all of the sparkle in a photo, so I hope this little video clip shows it off better.

I'd love you to join me by wishing Kim a very happy birthday in the comments below, I hope you have a wonderful day with your children.

Your next stop is the super talented Chris, below you will find all the stops for the DT.
