Hello my lovelies, I hope you're all keeping well.
Todays card has been made using the gorgeous Raining Hearts Tilda, which a very sweet blogging friend send to me (mwaaaah - you know who you are xxx) so I could try out some different watercolour paper. I wasn't overly chuffed with the stuff I had for watercolouring and tbh, I was using my prisma pencils on it as it just didn't blend well at all with distress ink. Probably got something to do with the fact that I'm a novice and need a little more time to move the ink around. Anyhow, the paper used today is Langton, and I must say, it's fab, just fab - totally love it, and it didn't take me long to decide that's what I'm gonna use in future - although hubby says I have to use my current stash up first - pah, yeah right, I'll be here all year, lol!!!!!!!
Anyhow, I was asked to make this for a real girly girls 4th birthday - hence the overpowering injection of pink - hmmm, yeah I know, bit in your face for me but hey, the customer is always right - I think!!!!!
Like I said, the image was supplied by a blogging friend (x) and I've coloured her up with distress ink refills. I've used a large gardenia flower and some cherry blossoms from the amazing Wild Orchid Crafts and a doily and cheesecloth from Live and Love Crafts. Again the papers I've had for ages, but I think the deep pink in the background is from Craft Creations along with the balloons - tuther paper stuff I ain't got a clue, lol.
The prezzies and cake are quickcutz dies that I found in a drawer - oopsie. I cut a cheery lynn kiwi doily die out of the same pink paper, distressed it and layered it on top of the white doily just to break the white up a bit. The butterflies are a mixture of Martha Stewart, Joy and Memory Box. I actually wish I'd matted them between the paper layers rather than on the top but hey, hindsight is a wonderful thing lol. The little puffy clouds are also Memory Box dies.
Well that's it from me for today, I'm on a roll atm with Christmas cards, so I'm gonna get on before my mojo disappears out the window.
I'm entering this card into the current Marvelous Magnolia challenge - Birthday Bash. and Tilda's Town - Anything goes.
Have a lovely day
