Happy Birthday Dear Sandie (London Days) and a Faux Washi Tape THANKS Card

My Dear Blogland friend Sandie (London Days) is turn 50.... yaayyyy...... Sandie, Happy Happy Birthday first and I have managed to make this card for you yaayy....hope you will love this MIDNIGHT City Scene card :) and I hope you spoiled by your hubby and you get some crafting goodies from him too...and eat cake with him and made candellight dinner with your lovely hubby :)

And another news Kylie made also a Surprise Linky Party for Sandie...if you like to join, just klick this LINK please

Here is the card for Sandie, I knew she loves Purple colors also my Midnight Sky is also with a bit purple color.

How I made my Card: (The Idea I have seen on you tube some times ago and I forgot to save the link ...really sorry :( )

1. Stamped the City Scene with black Archival Ink.
2. Adhere the circle Dies and cut it only a 2/3 at top area of City Scene. (until orange post it will cut, then under that part is not cut)

3. Fussy cut the shape of the building and stamped the Sentiment.
4. Then I took a white paper, masked it with big post it and started to sponged the ink. I like the result so much this time...I also adhere Pumice Stone to make the Sky more DARK at NIGHT :)

5. Adhere the City Scene at the top of my sky backgorund with double side tape and last but not least I drew with white Ink the stars. I can called my card finish :)

Here is another picture of my card, and I forgot to mention I colored the window with copic in yellow and grey. It means the one with yellow lamp still wake up and prepare the party for Sandie`s birthday :) yes they are colleague from Blogland, thats why they are not on the same building...some are from Asia, some are satying in Europe and some are in USA :)

Here is the photo if I have lamp behind me, can you see the shadow behind the building? Looks like a real night right :)

I also made this card for a challenge at CASology with the theme TEAR.

I see so many lovely DT cards with tear paper. Also this time I made my WASHI TAPE by my self and show the TEAR area. I took Vellum paper and with crafting cutter I cut it some WASHI shape and tear the edge too.

Then I started to stamping the dots in different colors and blending with sponge the different colors for my FAUX WASHI TAPE.

Here is the card with FAUX WASHI TAPE:

At the edge I extra gave grey distress ink to see the tear area :) The sentiment is PTI stamp. The flowers is SU (from Eunice, many thanks sweet friend :))
