Hi there and welcome to my crafting blog! I am a mother of two teenage daughters and have been crafting for over 15 years. I enjoy anything messy!!! Using inks, paints and particularly rubber stamping. I have followed other peoples blogs for some time now and have decided to create my own blog now and open a crafting family page to hopefully inspire others, you never stop learning......

Birthday Wishes (with a 60's twist!)....
Well how is this to make you smile first thing in the morning!
Loved making this card for a friend of my daughter Katie. I appreciate it was made for a 16 year old and I have used some of Sheena Douglass' Groovin 60's stamps but hey, it's a "boppy" card so boogie on down!!!!
I must admit to being rather bad at remembering to take photo's as I go along recently but I'll talk you through it as always. I get so engrossed in what I am doing, taking photo's doesn't enter my head - well, not until I've finished that is!!!!
OK, this card started with me sponging some pumice stone distress ink through lace (I love using lace!). Then I used a Sheena Douglass stencil from her Groovin 60's range and sponged some picked raspberry through it.
Flowers were stamped in the grey and pink again from Sheena's Groovin 60's range. I decided to use some wow embossing glitter with some of the flowers to give it a sparkle.
Then came the girls dancing stamp - a great stamp and I've used versafine grey ink here to stamp it. I wanted it to be a bit of a disco atmosphere so was happy for the colours of the flowers and stencils and lace to show through them a bit as they were silhouetted on there.
Used matching stamps to decorate the actual card base and stamped the sentiment twice on the card and once on the actual image.
I love these new stamps by Sheena Douglass and I do stress that I am too young to remember the 60's!!!!! (I'm a 70's baby!!!!!) but I just love the era and all that it brings.
A nice bit of fun today!
Hope you like what you've seen today and thanks for stopping by,
I would like to enter this card in to the Cards In Envy challenge of "Pink and Gray":-
