For My Sister

A Birthday Card
just for my sister.

I thought I would sit down and quickly ink up some card and make something for my sister....but the more I did, the more I wanted to add...you know how it goes!

Now my sister is always stirring me up in one way or another, so when I came up with the idea to stamp some circles onto a book page I couldn't resist stamping over some 'select' words, to stir her back...


I started with getting some ink onto the card using the swiping technique...with heaps of mustard seed re-inker (sooo much fun!)

Then, having some new Finnabair and Dina Wakly stamps, I thought it might be a good chance to play with them.

A little stenciling, some masking, a few splats of paint and some doodling...and there you have it!

And I have made a card that has "Happy Birthday" on it!

I hope you enjoy my card.
(and I hope my sister does too)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
