Birthday Boy

Today's card was inspired by the colour challenge over at Color Throwdown.
Although the photo inspiration had flowers on it I thought the colours
would lend themselves to a masculine 16th Birthday card.......
The colours are RED, PURPLE and ORANGE......

You can see a little more of the detailing, crackle and bling on this photo.

I used a mix of gold and purple embossing powders,
which played nicely together on the die cut photo film frame,
the stamping/embossing on the left and the die cut number 1.

I so enjoyed making the mixed media card, using stencilling, stamping, die cutting
and heat embossing and loved the colour combination from the challenge.

Monochromatic Happy Birthday

 Thankyou so much for all my kind and friendly comments on my last post,
which I really appreciated.

Today's card is mixed media and Monochromatic.....


The leaves have been stamped and half heat embossed with shimmer.
The die cut flower has been heat embossed with lots of UTEE on my pancake maker
for constant heat and swirled around with a cocktail stick whilst still molten.

I finished off with heat embossing one edge of the card,
stamping the Happy Birthday sentiments
and adding the thin die cut circle.
I had so much fun making this card and it was sent to one very special lady.

You Are Loved

I have caught up with all the those jobs I should have done during the first lockdown.
So now it's time for Crafting......

I have managed to keep up with commenting,
 so I haven't missed your amazing, inspirational and creative creations.....
Thank you.

I am so happy to be blogging again and here is today's card......

Inspired by my favourite challenge over at CAS Mix Up,
which is stamping through a stencil, hosted by Jenny.

After using the stencil and black archival  ink I left it in place to do the stamping.
The flowers and leaves where heat embossed in white
and the crackle on the right with clear.

The colouring has been done with paints
and I finished off with a little doodling in white and black pens.

The background has been lightly dry embossed
and I also added the horizontal strips,
as I wasn't keen on them not been embossed.

Thinking of you all and what a friendly community we have.
I am very grateful to those who popped in occasionally and asked after me.
