Happy Birthday from Mona

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello Portal Peeps!!!  Happy 4th July!  
If you are celebrating than have a good one. 
Gail here today with some inspiration for the Celebrate It! challenge.  I've gone for a birthday celebration.

For this card I used Lost Coast Designs Mona Flying, ATC Doodle Flowers, large rectangle Shadow Frame and Party Words.   The design was inspired by the current Lift Challenge where they want you to mask an area, blend inks, over stamp and then add a black and white image.  

I had an idea to use the large rectangle Shadow Frame, ink it with distress inks, spritz a bit with water and stamp it on my page.  Nice!  But then thinking about masking off to stamp into the inked area I didn't fancy fussy cutting that frilly edge....  So I decided to try stamping onto the shadow frame stamp and then stamping onto the inked page.
Ooh, pretty!!   Having a stamp platform or stamping tool is really helpful with this technique so you can perfectly over stamp LOL.    I used Spiced Marigold, Worn Lipstick  and Mustard Seed distress inks for the background and Rusty Hinge to stamp the Flowers.
I stamped Mona Flying on white card and fussy cut her and added her to the card.  To finish I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on my inky stamped panel.
Join the Celebrate It! challenge with your stamped anything featuring any celebration.  You can submit your entries in the linky party below until 23.59 PST on the 14th and don't forget to follow us so you don't miss anything!  The team will be posting more inspiration throughout the month so check back and join the fun.
