I was busy earlier in the week making a few things for DD No.1's upcoming birthday (more on that Wednesday) and then yesterday had to sit down and create some cards for next Tuesday's class. Well, somewheres in between my mojo wandered off and got lost and I had a terrible time trying to come up with something I am happy with. I'm still 50/50 on these cards but unless a thunderbolt of inspiration hits me between now and Monday, my Lana ladies will be stuck with them!
I am still endeavouring to use up some of my supplies of retired stuff and these bright and breezy papers appealed to me at the time. I had borrowed the Crazy for Cupcakes set and decided to use that for a range of birthday cards and ... well, if you could see the overflowing state of my rubbish bin, you would have an idea of the angst that went on here! Just as well DD No. 2 was at school!!! LOL
So here they are, my three bright and breezy birthday cards:
All the images are stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with inks and markers. Crystal effects gave them some gloss and dimension as well as hiding a multitude of sins with the colouring! I do see one, however, that needs a couple more corrections ....
- stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes, Party This Way, Sweet Little Sentiments
- card - taken with teal, daffodil delight, old olive, rose red, watercolour paper, DSP from retired scrapbooking kit (forgotten the name)
- other - large oval and scallop oval punches, rose red and old olive ribbon, dimensionals, dazzling diamonds
Thanks for dropping in.
