Inspiring crafty creations by Christa


70th birthday

Spring in Fashion.

Combined the Crafty Individuals challenge theme with a 70th birthday card i needed for a friend. Created the background using CI-171 Harlequin script stamp with two colours of Brilliance ink, peacock and orchid and over stamped with CI-182 elegant swirl then added the happy birthday.....a free stamp from CI with an order.

For the layer background I stamped a verse over some harlequin paper and stamped a flourish in the corners to tie in with main background.

The main images are from CI-322 the dressmaker stamped on some left over background that was masked with the CI beautiful butterflies panel sprayed with glimmer mist. Added some additional colour to the lady and to all the edges of the layers etc.

Stamped and cut out some leaves and the flower and added the die cut flourishes and 70 and a few pearls to finish.
