Belated Birthday

My sweet friend Debbie brought me this stamp set in Texas and I couldn't wait to ink it up! One of the things I love most about PTI stamps is how so many of the images are assembly style, allowing you to stamp different parts of an image in different colors without needing to use markers. This turtle is actually 6 different stamps, but he came together so quickly.

The spots and stripe on his shell are covered with Stardust Stickles and a small black gemstone from the Zva Creative crystal wheel acts as his eye.
The strip on the background was done using the PTI set Background Basics: Retro and the circles were filled in with a white gel pen, which also was used to dot around the scallops of the oval. Since I am famously late with sending out birthday cards, this one has already gotten some use!

Stamps: PTI Pond Life, Pond Life Sentiments, Background Basics: Retro
Ink: PTI Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado
Paper: PTI Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, white
Other: white gel pen, Zva Creative crystal wheel, Stardust Stickles, Marvy oval and scalloped oval punches, foam adhesive dots
