It's my friend, Lesley's Birthday and thought I'd go for a monogram card.

This is a one layered card using my very old large alphabet from Hero Arts, and masking with The Greetery Birthday Blooms, and then I embossed with my NBUS Altenew Frame.

I used to Copics to colour the letter and make shadows.

Cute Critter Wishes

 One of my favourite little critters ...

This was my first attempt ... can you spot the error?

Easier to see on the close-up! I didn't mask the flowers when I was doing the distressing around the circle!

Which colour sky do you prefer?

Birthday Mandala 1 & 2

 Getting some new supplies inked up ! I tried the Altenew Mandala Builder Set. It's 6" square.

I decided to try make 2 cards on the standard card size, so this is the first. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Word Mix.

The part I trimmed, was put on a new card.

It was only after I saw it displayed there amongst my other cards, that I thought I should have but some tea cups on top as if the pattern was part of a tablecloth!

My mind works slowly sometimes.

I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to add interest.

Sea Shell Wishes for you

Our beaches will be re-opening as of 1 July. Yay!

I used the smooshing technique to do the sand (with Antique Linen) and sea (Speckled Egg). I stamped the ink pad on a sheet of plastic, spritzed with some water and then smooshed it on the card. I also added some splatters afterwards to give some more texture.
