A Bloomin Marvellous Birthday

Published January 28, 2015 by isisimaginings

Evening, here’s another birthday card. Before Christmas I took a Saturday off from crafting & went, with my friend Lisa, to one of Eileen Godwin’s workshops in All Hallows, Kent. Eileen is huge fun, her workshops are very relaxed; she shows the projects, demoes the techniques & then you can follow them, or do your own thing. If Eileen is new to you, check out her blog; Eileen’s Crafty Zone, she makes gorgeous cards.

True to form, I ended up with just one finished card, but it’s a big one – 8×8……..

The background is Brusho colours, the stamps are all Designs by Ryn – I NEED these!! – & the stencil is Wendy Vecchi’s Lovely Large Flower. I used Black Soot for the flower & it wasn’t dark enough, so I added the white dots, replaced the stencil & applied embossing ink through it, then heat set with clear embossing powder. The greeting is from PaperArtsy JOFY Collection 11.


Thanks for looking, see you next time.

  • Oooh this is beautiful! I do envy you doing one of Eileen’s workshops. I love what she does but her workshops that are reachable for me always seem to book up before I see them, lol! Must try harder to keep an eye out. Love what you did with the flower.
