Happy Birthday

Hi folks, here's today's card, it should have actually been posted last week but I forgot.

The papers are from Simple Stories and are really pretty so thought I would so something that would match.

I stamped up the flower and embossed in gold and cut out using my scan n cut, I then coloured with Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.  I cut out a circle and added some shading and splodges and then layered both onto the card.

I added the sentiment to finish along with some little sequins.

Products used: Altenew Beautiful Day, Altenew Lavel Love, Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers - Moss Green, Red Violet, Orange, Sunflower, Fawn. Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness.

Be Positive...

Good Morning everybody, today I am sharing my DT card for My Mum's Craft Shop!

I just love this stamp set, it's so versatile and has beautiful sentiments included in the set.  It's from Altenew and is called Smile More.

I white embossed the flowers and leaves randomly on to watercoloured card, I did have to do a bit of masking so that I could layer the images.  I then coloured the panel with distress inks, I think distress inks are really easy to use with this technique...I love it!

I stamped the sentiment using black archival ink and then added a few sequins to finish.

Be Positive

Hi folks,

Hope you are having a happy Saturday!

Here's today's make...well I actually made it last week but just getting around to posting it.

The stamp is from Altenew and is called Smile More, I stamped the flowers and them embossed with gold embossing powder, I then cut them out using my scan n cut.

I then coloured the flowers and leaves using Spectrum Noir Aqua markers, I wanted the colours to loo like peacock feathers and it does but not sure you can see that in the photo. I added some splodges and sequins to finish.
