'Birthdays with a Twist' at Try it on Tuesdays




Yes that's right  - Birthdays 'WITH A TWIST'at Try it on Tuesdays -  and the Twist is you have to use a Mask (OR a Stencil)
I coloured my tag with Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord, Iced Spruce  and Bundled Sage DIs, then used scrip, sequin waste and harlequin masks with the Dusty Concord, some random stamping with a fern stamp in Bundled Sage, and then a light misting with water. Embossed the bottom and rubbed on some Enchanted Gold gilding wax, this was a nightmare to photograph and I assure  you it's not just a mucky splodge on the bottom!  My 'Queen for a Day' is an old, and I think retired,Crafty Individuals stamp, (which was made at a card class when I first started cardmaking) rediscovered in a bits box. My 'gemstone' crown is Tim Holtz, coloured with Dusty Concord and glitzed with Glamour Dust - well a Queen does have to have sparkle!
My very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you so pop over to the main blog for all the details, and you will also see that one of our DTs has a very special birthday!

Scrumptious dusky rose colours in the background - this has a real flavour of the Renaissance about it, with that wonderful gilding, and the faded glamour of the harlequins and script.
