Happy birthday to my best friend

Friday was my best friends birthday but I didn’t get to pass her card to her until last night so I can finally share it with you! 

I chose to do an arty mixed media card for her as I wanted to use stars as the main feature and this picture from some giftwrap I saved…. this is so us! 

My friends thing is stars so hence the stars and she also likes purple… so that was the decision made! 

In this close up hopefully you can see the iridescent medium stars I added for additional texture.  

Happy crafting !

Colour my Monday! hello honey!

This weeks colour for my colour challenge I didn’t like very much/couldn’t really see me using it much but when I started using it I couldn’t stop … So much so I made three cards in the space of a week (at the beginning of August) … So sometimes you can misjudge a colour until you use it!

So without further ado… Happy Monday!

And my three cards for you …

I have loved this stamp of the steampunk snail ever since I saw it launched but never was in stock when ordering the other sets of Darcy’s stamps but finally I have it! And isn’t he the coolest! Use Acrylic Ink for the copper part and a mixture of inks for the body but mainly Hello Honey. The sentiment is a Darkroom Door one that I think works perfectly with the snail. I did the snail on an ATC so it could be taken from the card and kept. I used a stencil which I brushed the Ink through.

Next a card made for my 5yr old Great Nephew (still feel ancient writing that!). Decided on some funky robots in different colours and then use a border of Hello Honey and the same for the sentiment!

Ok this may be a slight cheat… Hello Honey used as a pop of colour to a black and white card! Ha ha!

Anyways… Loving this colour now!

Happy crafting!

Ok I confess I made this card ages ago and thought I would keep it ready to share when I reached Real red in the Colour My Monday challenge. It was a card I made for my youngest great nephew’s 1st birthday… And I chose Make a Monster for the stamp set as he is a real cheeky monster!

I used Postively Chevron to stamp the background paper, and then used the colour combo of Gumball Green, Pacific Point & Elegant Eggplant to stamp both the banners for bunting and the little monsters! Of course I had to add the googlie eyes to finish it off!

Happy crafting!
