Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I am back at work and I have had the back to work headache which is a shame. It really isn't long to the weekend now.

I made this card for the now deceased Fantasy Stampers Challenge blog which closed down at the beginning of January. I was ahead of myself and had made a card for the January challenge that was never to be.


I do love this colour combination I keep having to reorder the card because I keep running out of it. I created the background by putting some Pixie Powders and Brushos onto a craft mat and with water making a puddle of ink, Then in my hand I took the Spring Trail background stamp (designed by John Lockwood for Creative Expressions) and stamped the blue ink all over sheet of water colour card. 


I used a Visible image stamp for the Happy Birthday I stamped it straight on to the card and heat embossed it with a black powder. 


For the centre I used the Going to Seed stamp by Woodware. this was also heat embossed with a black powder. 


I hope the rest of the week is kind to you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  1. A lovely card Jackie. Sorry to hear about your headache, I must admit to not looking forward to next Tuesday when I am back in work. The first week back after Christmas is always a tough one, excited children and education are not always a good mix.
    Enjoy your weekend
