Back to birthdays
Well, as it was one of my nieces birthdays yesterday, thought I'd better get back to making cards. The idea for this one came from Sarah's blog - thanks for that Sarah! and uses my favourite Penny Black stamps - would have magnolia's or bellas as my favourites, but I don't actually own any of these, so stuck with the old faithful.
The background paper is from the Papermania Amethyst Infusion pack, and the gorgeous ribbon was from a Dovecraft special - 5 metres of ribbon for 99p!!!
I used watercolour pencils to colour the image, and although you can't see it, I also used some shimmering watercolour paints to add further highlights.
I hope she likes it!
