Soho Birthday Zinger

While we all wait for our New Catalog goodies to arrive, how about a little love for the Photopolymer stamp set that came out last month. I have hardly played with it! It has some great humorous birthday zingers and I can think of a few people I could give this one too.

The polka dot paper in the background is actually some of the retired IC DSP stack paper in Summer Starfruit and sponged on the edges with some Soft Suede. That made it fit right in with the Soho Subway print that is the numbered DSP, which is where I pulled all the colors for this card. And as you can tell, my Crisp Cantaloupe inkpad is just a little too juicy right now :)
The buttons are made with the Simply Pressed Clay and Mold. I made a bunch of plain ones when I first got my preorder so I could color them any color I wanted. I found the best way to color them is directly with a marker. Quick and easy, but I do get my fingers all inky, lol. Another lovely thing about the Simply Pressed Clay is that the finished embellishment sticks to your project easily and firmly with your Tombow Mono glue!

FUN! Love the patterns on the different layers (numbers, dots, etc.) and of course the sentiment, ha! Thanks for the tip on coloring the clay.
