My first plan is to use watercolor brush on this brush stroke stamp by directly applying color to the clear stamp. This technique didn't make a good impression on the stamped image so I used dye ink.
For the sentiment, I wanted to use the label die. I looked through my stash for a stamp set that will fit the label. I came up with an alphabet die which was hard to line up even if it is a clear stamp. I cut the letters individually to be able to line it up. To match the red of the stamped red brush stroke, I inked a white cardstock, then allowed this to dry before I die cut the label.
I did some masking to create Happy Day from the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamp. This was heat embossed using clear/black powder. The label is adhered between these sentiments with foam tape to give it depth. I adhered this on a black note card with foam tape.
The circles were created by adhering washi tapes on white cardstock. I die cut this using the middle-sized circle die. After I scattered and adhered these circles to the cardfront, I applied Glossy Accents to it.
