Tick Tock Birthday Card by Debs Smith

Happy New Year everyone

I have done a birthday card for you today! Its nice and bright and cheerful to take my mind off the miserable grey weather we have here at the moment!


The background is brayered and to see how i achieved the look read on.  The flowers and the sentiment were stamped on a mop up sheet.

 I started with a piece of white card and bartered a small amount of Fresco Finish Mahogany to cover the card

I then applied Terracotta and Tangerine Twist over the top of the Mahogany.  At this point i wasn't quite sure if it was quite the colour i was looking for so i took the Snowflake

 and covered the whole thing with white to knock the colour back a tad
I then added Bouganvilla over the top of the white in places and it was starting looking so much brighter
I had used a spare piece of card to mop up the excess paint with some water expecting to put it in my stash for future use.  I have just noticed a red indian in the paint  wish i had seen it before!!

I then stamped tick tock flowers with black Archival onto the mop up sheet and cut them out using two of the large flower and one of the small.
I then added some background stamping to the main piece by using the number stamp from  the Family Values plate and then stamped one of the flourishes from the Swirls and Splats plate these would be under the flower so it didnt matter that they hadn't lined up completely 
I added the flower onto the top of the flourish and popped a button from my stash on the top and then stamped Happy Birthday from the Grungy Greetings plate onto another piece of the mop up sheet.

Added this piece to a white card and voila!!

Thanks for popping over and i am looking forward to seeing all of your entries this year!
Happy creating 
Debs
