Birthday Wishes

I'm having a blast from the past kind of day. New supplies are coming so fast and furious that it's hard to find time to play with past favourites. So mixing it up with a new stencil and old punch today.


Golden Blooms

I haven't played much with my new stamps ... the Altenew "Amazing You" set being one of them.

A little bird ...

Time to do some paper piecing and to play with some oldie but favourites.

My entry for ...

CASology #261 : Safari

The cue word at CASology is SAFARI this week. This is where I so need the Hero Arts June Monthly kit! But it was sold out in record time. So it was the Silhouette to the rescue. 

I wanted to do an African silhouette and sunset, so I printed out the image at the width of the card. Started distressing with a touch of Scattered Straw for the edge of the moon, with Ripe Persimmon, Broken China and Faded Jeans for the sky.

My original idea was to have the silhouette and shaded band only about 1½" high so that I could preserve lots of white space and it would qualify as a CAS card. But this takes up more than ⅓ of the card. Should have printed it smaller and made the grasslands wider, either on the silhouette or by hand.

Too lazy to reprint and colour, so then I checked out other images in my library. I thought this cool looking giraffe would fit the bill perfectly! Keeping it to a bare minimum, added a touch of watercolour & brightened it up with this fun frame from Studio Calico, and word tags from Lili of the Valley.
