Happy Birthday !

I found some time to make a birthday card, though it did take me several days, and below is the reason why !


This little fella certainly takes after me as he loves paper, the only problem is he likes to run off with it ! So finding time to craft is a definite art and everything has to be above waist height otherwise it's fair game ! 


 So back to the birthday card, I'd got some of the new PaperArtsy stamps and they'd been staring at me for a couple of weeks so I took the opportunity to open them up and have a play. The background was brayered and I used some of the new Fresco Finish colours. I then did some stencilling using one of Lin Brown's new stencils.


I stamped the background using one of the new Kay Carley stamps. I used my Inktense pencils to add some colour and did the same with the grasses. 



The flower heads were stamped onto painted Smoothy card then I used my Inktense pencils again to add some colour. Rather enjoying using my Inktense pencils at the moment ! The flower heads and stems were then cut out and glued into place, the flower heads raised up on foam pads. To finish off I used one of the new Lin Brown sentiments and added three little flower embellishments that I painted with Fresco Finish paints.

So it just leaves me to say Happy Birthday Ruth ! I hope you've had a fabulous day !
