It's your Birthday so its Party Time


A pretty little eater colour card. I thought it would be nice to do a flower card as they are my favourite and I needed something I could put together easily as I am at mum and dads for a few days and minimal supplies.

I stamped and white embossed this beautiful flower from Inspired by Stamping - love this magnolia stamp. Actually I love all the flower stamps I have from there. They stamp beautifully and are so easy to watercolour or colour with copics or pencils.
This beautiful colour is achieved by using Zigs yellow and dark yellow. A wash of the pale yellow then adding just the smallest amount of the darker yellow where I wanted to create depth then adding more water to wash it out. Finished off with Wink of Stella.


Added the die cut sentiment 'Party Time' on the out side and 'It's your birthday'
on the inside. Finished off with a mix of sequins in lemons and gold.


A challenge or two:


This one is without the topping.














thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Gorgeous Aileen lovely card, your really excell in colouring.
By the way, you need to read this post here:
https://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.com.au/2016/03/woyww-open-link-in-new-window-on.html
Twice in each of last two posts I've clicked on links you've shared and been taken away from your blog instead of it opening a new window. Then have to find your post again. Not as much a pain on desktop as you can right click but can't on mobile device and unnecessarily annoying.
Hope it helps you readers. Need any help give a yell,
