Birthday Blooms nearly disappeared from my collection recently when I accidentally thought it had retired! As soon as I realised I thought ‘ well you just have to use it now’ and so I did.
To be honest, I actually made the upscaled version first and then thought about how to change it. I stamped the main image first in Basic Gray and then, after stamping off twice first, I stamped the other images in Smoky Slate.
I added two strips of card across the bottom and added the sentiment.
I really don’t think I am very good at colouring, especially with a blender pen, but I am quite pleased with these.
So on this second one I fussy cut (yes it took ages) the main image out and used two of the lovely new Mini Chevron Ribbon, in Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. I also added a couple of Enamel Shapes.
I hope this inspires you to have a go, either fussy cutting or using a blender pen. I actually did enjoy doing these cards and I hope you do to.
Happy Crafting ?
