Happy Birthday

Hello and welcome

I hope you are all staying safe and well and managing to do some crafting.

As I was looking through some papers where I had played with some different inks and watercolour techniques.

I found this one that was quite bright, so I thought it was perfect for the bokeh effects. I had a stencil I had made previously and used Hero Arts White ink to add the circles. By the next morning, much of the ink had sunk into the watercolour paper, so I added some more circle using just the end of the ink dauber.

I decided to use it to join the Newton’s Nook challenge and downloaded a freebie, which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

After layering 2 pieces of vellum over a piece of white card, I added it to the centre to make the background for this cute little bird!

I added layers of Wink of Stella over the balloon.

The heat embossed sentiment is from Altnew – Label Love set.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
