Make A Wish

Hi Everyone
I have managed a little crafty play that isn't as DT work, a first for a long time. I have just treated myself to some of the new stamps designed by Trish Latimer and available from her Etsy shop HERE and couldn't resist having a little play. I had a birthday card to make for another of my nieces who turned 12 yesterday and used one of the new stamps to make a birthday card. I chose to use Wordgirl 4. 

Background started as a gelli print miss print and then I inked up a star stencil with matching colours of distress ink, spritzed lightly with water and then used as a stamp over the gelli print. I coloured the centre star with coloured pencils and once I had added some random stamping machine stitched around the heart and then around the background.

The wordgirl has then been coloured with water colours and pencils, cut out and added to the background. I've used some alphabet stickers to add the Happy Birthday sentiment. 
She loved the card or maybe it was the money that I had put inside!
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it
