Birthday Wishes


Hey folks..a wee post from me today!

So I have been having a bit of dilema on whether to sell my scan 'n' cut machine as I have used it only a few times however some crafty friends have been putting me off selling  So today I decided to make the effort and use it....and here we are...

I stamped the leaves and then scanned and cut them and then coloured with my zig clean color brush pens...I do love my pens!

So first I stamped and embossed the background in gold sparkle embossing powder, I then lightly added some colour using the zig pens.

Once dry I arranged and layered up my leaves and little acorns onto the gold embossed background.  I then die cut the "birthday" word and layered on top of the leaves.

I added a few black splodges and some sequins to finish!

products used: Winnie and Walter Renees Leaves, MFT Morroccan Background, MFT Cause for Celebration die, Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens.
