Flirty frames

Hi Crafters,

How are you? I've been rather busy lately, so I didn’t get around to much crafting. My daugthers' Birthday is coming up and I am not at all done with planning. Besides there was our street festival last week-end, which is always a huge affair. As we practically live right next to where they set up the Ferris wheel every year, we can't avoid it either...

This year my girls had three performances with their dance group, which cost me (and them) two full afternoons. 

Anyhow, I managed to create at least one card:

I cut my card base from water colour paper and stamped the frames in black Archival ink. Then I masked off all the frames and stamped the animals and sentiment.

I coloured all the frames and animals with water colours and added a little bling – mainly because I had to hide a spot where I hadn’t waited long enough and some blue seeped into the yellow.

I admit, I am not entirely happy with it, but it’s nice and bright, so I am pretty sure one of my daughters’ friends will like it.

Have a great day

Seize the Birthday: Animal Birthday


  1. Fun images and pretty colors! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!

  2. Ich weiß nicht, was du hast, Ela, die Karte ist ganz wundervoll! Vor allem die Farben lassen mich dahinschmelzen. Und dass dir der Patzer mit der Farbe passiert ist, ist eigentlich super, denn die Glitzersteinchen runden die Karte meiner Meinung nach richtig gut ab.
