Birthday Dreams



Sorry there has been such a long gap between posts, I am not very organised at the moment. The card used throughout has been coloured with the Summer Distress Colours, I love them, they are so vibrant!  I inked the card using a blending tool then spritzed and blobbed with water letting it run in places.  I dried with a heat gun then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl.  The background has ink dabbed through the Dylusions Dotted Flower stencil.  The flower stamp is from a set by Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen called Retro Rose stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder. The sentiment stamp is Penny Black but unfortunately  I can't remember the name of the Spellbinder die as it was one a friend lent me a while ago.

 I have been very slow visiting everyone's blogs too, I am so sorry, will try and catch up in the next few days.  My daughter is getting married a week on Friday so its a very exciting time!  I can't wait! Thank you for visiting me.  Take care.  Christine xx

I love this card Chris and thanks for 'visiting' me. Hope you are well - i am managing to stay in control of the dreaded migraines with a combination of medication, no caffeine and a magnesium supplement!

Your card is SO GORGEOUS, Chris. I love the colours, the magnificent background and the stamping.
Thank you for all your visits and appreciative comments.

Thank you for your comments about art - it is fascinating how we view things. Perhaps the difference between our heart and our heads ...

Less than a week to go. I hope everything goes smoothly and that you all have a wonderful day on Friday. J x

Hi Chris, I've been meaning to 'drop by' your blog for a while to thank you for your lovely comments on my projects on the Snazzy DT blog. I really appreciate it and am glad you like the stuff I make.

I love the card you've made here. As you say those colours are so vibrant (I keep forgetting all about mine). I haven't seen those flower stamps before but they are gorgeous.

I hope your Daughter and your family had a wonderful day for her wedding and that the sun shone for the day.

Hugs
Lesley XX
