Hello Everyone

We have a treat for you today
We haven't forgotten that at
this time of year people have
birthdays too

Here's a set of cards to cheer
anyone's day from Claire Jackson

Cut a piece of white card to 4.5” x 6.5” and stamp 
the focal image(s) in Memento ink 
(as it won’t bleed with alcohol markers)

Make a mask to cover the stamping. 
I used masking paper but sticky notes would do

Stencil over the background using two colours of Distress Ink.
Use the small stamps on the background in black ink. 
Remove the masks

Colour the images (I used ProMarkers).
I used a light grey to outline the main images t
o give a slight shadow effect and add subtle depth

Add a computer generated greeting and 
mount on black card on a 5” x 7” card blank.

For a little extra depth I used glossy accents on some of the details

The new Zinski stamps are great for adults and children alike. 
These cards would be very easy to add a number to for a child’s birthday

Thank you Claire for a
A fantastic set of cards 
They do make me smile
in fact
I might be smiling all day .......

Back again tomorrow
