Happy Birthday!

I love playing with distress inks & fussy cutting. The cat, dog, bee, butterfly & tree were paper pieced and the flowers, sky & grass were coloured using distress inks. I've highlighted the flight paths, the bees wings & the birds on the patterned paper with glitter glue and I've only used one Promarker to stripe the bee. The flower stamps come in parts, so each one is unique.


Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters in the 'Burbs, Jessie's ABCs, Gnome Sweet Gnome
Paper:  White card from stash, Dovecraft Back to Basics II, Docrafts Woodland Folk, Papermania Birdsong
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Stormy Sky
Embellishments: Glossy Accents, Glitter glue, Stickles, Gems
Promarkers: Black

Thanks for dropping by, bee happy :)
