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:

Words…at FSC

WORDS
is the new challenge at FSC this month.
When I look back over my work, I realise that ‘words’ are not something that I use a lot of.  Not that I am ever short of a word or two, I’m just not a “Happy Birthday” sort of person with my card creations.
However, for this challenge I have gone with a Tree Poem (by Stampendous) which I think suits this challenge perfectly.
haha…still no “Happy Birthday” 🙂
The background is made with Bister and I’ve splattered some H2O’s and white paint for extra oomph.
The background is some 7 Dots paper that I had which I’ve inked up and stamped on before adding some leaves for that touch of Autumn.  
I was at Paperific (papercraft show) in Melbourne recently and got to see a lot of products IRL…a change from the internet where a lot of my purchases are made. It was so good to see what size the stamps are!!! (I know, it’s the little things).
 I saw Flitterglu for the first time and couldn’t resist buying some and using it on this card.
I also took a class with Limor Weber while I was at Paperific which was an incredible experience…she left me feeling very clever! 
And I also met some wonderfully creative Australian people.
It would be great to catch up with them again one day!!!
I don’t often work on canvas’s, but Limor helped me face my fears of BIG spaces lol…I had so much fun and learnt heaps!!!
Back to the challenge ~ 
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you enjoy my card.
