HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
Today a friend of my turned that age which you thought was old when you were young, but isn’t really that old. It is just your state of mind that makes you feel old – or your body fighting back!
I used the build a rose stamp set from Altenew. Colours were the Cherry Blossom ink set, but I have not yet got the final inner part of the rose right yet. All I can say is practice, practice, practice. For the leaves I used the Warm Grey ink set.
The background was made using a Sue Wilson die set which was expanded to fit the whole of the card (which was 5×7″) by cutting, moving, matching and cutting again. This technique allows you to get more use out of your dies. The lattice was layered onto a maroon coloured background to create a feeling of shade and bring the pink roses together.
I am also going to enter in the following challenges:
