Good morning all, hope your Friday has started well... As you are reading this we are on our way to Belfast ready for tomorrow's Clarity workshop. In fact this is a scheduled post and I am actually writing it at 11pm...after only just finishing packing the van..
Today it is a new challenge over a the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog...
Our new theme is Birthdays
And is hosted by the lovely Sasha
And sponsored by Live and Love Crafts
Here is what I came up with
It is actually a Birthday card for my very special Aunty Sue...and as she has received it , so I can share it with you all...
I started with a piece of Stencil card and this wonderful Basket stamp.
I used Distress ink and water to add some colour,
And some shade
Next came the background, Jo's bubbles stencil came out again...
I made a cut in the card so that I could add the flowers into the basket
Then I stamped the sentiment and decorated it to match the rest of the card
All the stamps and stencil can be found here http://www.claritystamp.co.uk
I also stamped Sue onto a little wooden plaque and then burnt it in with my pyrography iron..
I do find this such a great way to personalise a card, and make it even more special
Next came the flowers, I do love a bit of flowers arranging...
And a gorgeous little metal embellishment from Live and Love crafts, it is a tea bag...and you can find it here...
Do check out the rest of the dt's wonderful and inspirational work. You can find them here
I really must dash now...have a wonderful weekend all.
Call back soon
Much love and hugs
