Scene Building Pt. 3 - Unforgettable Birthday

Hey folks!

I'm back with the 3rd and final video where we have been focusing on masking and building a scene. In the first video, I showed you how I make a plan, stamp it out and mask it. In the second video, I talked about coloring in our scene. In todays video, I talk about finishing it off.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.


You can see the video of Part 1 by clicking HERE, Part 2 by clicking HERE and today's video by clicking HERE or by clicking on the image below. I haven't a clue why the thumbnail is so small folks, my apologies!




Scenes like these have an added benefit in that you don't need to do a whole lot to finish them off. In fact, you wouldn't necessarily need to add a background, a sentiment or anything else to it. You could stamp it, color it, put it on your card base an you would be good to go.


I liked the idea of adding some backgrounds to them, so I did some ink blending on them. If you're really comfortable with Copic coloring, you could color them in that way. I try not to use up all my ink that way, but it's doable.

You could also stamp these on watercolor paper. Copic color your images and watercolor the background. Don't be afraid to explore and do whats best for you folks.

Since I used Wplus9 stamps, I thought I would continue to use their inks as well, but any brand of ink would be just fine. For the Unforgettable Birthday card at the top I used Wild Mango and Sweet Nectar, For the Forest Birthday card I used Bo Peep Dye Ink and for the Garden Buddy Birthday, I used Appletini. First I applied a light layer with a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool the went over it again, but this time I used the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil.


Also, because I felt these cards didn't need any special embellishments, I used some Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Glitter Pen, a Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen, Sakura Glaze Pens in Black and Clear to give my cards a lil extra oomph.

That's it! We are done! Woot!

I do hope you all enjoyed this series. I had so much fun making it and sharing it with you! One last thing, I will have the entire video, start to finish up on my channel in the next day or so, so be sure to Subscribe and check it out!

Until next time!
