Sharing some Birthday Cards
I am having a 'day in' today, thought I better considering I was out with friends for lunch again yesterday, planned to spend some 'quality time' with DH, but he has gone to the pub with a friend to watch the football - and I didn't mind, after all I do have some new stamps to ink up!
I had a few birthday cards to make in November last year, took the photos, but didn't get the chance to show them. I tend to do 'girlie' cards for a lot of my friends and this is one of them. I have used my Clarity stamp - Sketchy Lady with black and white papers and red punched border, ribbon and pearls for a 'sophisticated' look! I have folded the front of the card back on itself, before adding the image. I did try black Promarkers for her dress, but it was too dense, so have used Distress Ink - Black Soot. I gave her a 'diamond' necklace which I think you can just see in the piccy.
I am going to enter this card in Papertake Weeklys challenge - Ribbons & Pearls
Lets Ink It Up Challenge is Anything Goes
I found a new challenge at Glenda's Papers,Scissors and Rocks by Glenda which is to use red on you project, so I am entering it there as well.
It was also 'craft buddy' Diane's birthday in November and I used some Clarity stamps that I had just bought (and somehow kept a secret from her - the card had to be something she hadn't seen before).
This one is Velvet Lady and a Lamppost stamp.
I used my Clarity swirl and heat embossed with Versamark and clear and gold embossing powders on the base card. I coloured the lady with Promarkers and chalked around her.
I am going to enter this card in Lets Ink It Up Anything Goes as well - not sure if this is allowed, but I do see multiple entries in some challenges, so it must be.
Oh, I nearly forgot, I won over at Craft your Passion for 'Tie One On'!
Well thats my second post today, so time to use the new House Mouse stamps.
