Surprise Birthday Party for Suzy!

Today, we celebrate the birthday of that sassy red head, the Queen of Snark.... Miss Suzy from So Suzy Stamps!  There's a ton of fun on this blog hop, plus prizes.  I mean, who has a party and doesn't bring a gift, right?  

My card features the "Ordinary Days" sentiment, "Dot Splatter" for my fairy dust, wings from the the "Fairy with Flower" "Spire Sage", and several of Suzy's Ink bites.

I'm using lots of distress ink with my Ranger blender tool (on Strathmore 300 series water color paper), for my dark sky and used my water brush with So Suzy Angel Wings ink bites to give it a more cloudy appearance.

The yellow glow in the center is courtesy of more blending, but this time I'm using So Suzy Ink Bites in Sunflower Sue from the Autumn Equinox ink bites collection.  The bottom portion of my watercolor paper was blended with Ranger Cracked Pistachio.  I scrunched up a paper towel and dipped it into Suzy's Hunter Green ink bites, also from the Autumn Equinox collection, and dabbed it all along the bottom, before stamping with my Spire Sage foliage stamp.  My black inks are Memento.

For my wings and fairy dust, I stamped just the wings from the Fairy with Flowerheat embossed with Nuvo embossing powder on vellum and fussy cut, then glittered them up with Rangers Stickles Glitter Glue in Mercury Glass.  My wings are popped out with a very thin strip of adhesive along the bottom edge of the wings and I folded that edge inward so the wings would be raised.    I stamped the "Dot Splatter" stamp with So Suzy Angel Wings white pigment ink bites, them dabbed on more of the Stickles glitter glue, for my fairy dust.
