Birthday Boy



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week it's Wendy's son's Birthday and she has chosen the theme of 'Birthday Boy' and she is giving a lovely stamp set to this weeks winner.

I created the background with masks and Pan Pastels then stamped the scene using stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Kingfisher collection. I stamped and coloured the Kingfisher a second time and decoupaged him.


I also have my mid month share for Penny Black and More, a Pan Pastel background again, masking to create the panel and stamped with the beautiful PB Hollyhock which I coloured softly with pencils along with PB Aspire and PB Dream sentiment.

I do hope you will join us his week at Allsorts and if you have not already done so Penny Black and More as well, please do pop over to the challenge blogs to see the inspiration on offer from my team mates.

I never think to use masking when creating a card, and your cards display how gorgeous the technique is! I especially like the 2nd card's masking, and hope to REMEMBER to use it soon. There is nothing so pretty as the softness of your natural backgrounds, and the vibrance of your images! Lovely cards, my sweet friend! hugs, de

I just LOVE the scene you created with the bird. Amazing stamping, such an inspiration. I so wish I could get my hands on some Chocolate Baroque, but it is quite expensive to import them. :( Regardless, I just love seeing what you do! Hugs, Autumn
