Today we are celebrating Sandie's big 50th birthday with a surprise linky party over at Kylie's blog. I'm sure you will have come across Sandie's fabulous DT work with the Fusion Challenge, Inkspirational, the Card Concept and Time Out Challenge but if you haven't, why not pop to her blog London Days and be wowed by her great CAS designs.
I started by having a play with my new Papertrey Ink Modern Background Stencils (Yes PTI have started selling stencils and they are lovely!). I used the chevron style one and inked it up in an ombre style over a panel of card and when it was dry, I adjusted the position of the stencil and went in again with soft stone ink.
I cut the panel with one of the PTI Tipped Top dies and glued it to my base card before adding a couple of strips of black card to frame it. I cut the Joanna Sheen Echinacea flower twice from watercolour paper and coloured it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens before stacking the flowers to give them a bit more structure. I added the flower to the card and then cut the PTI One Liner : Happy die and added it to the bottom before stamping the birthday greeting from PTI Birthday Bash
To finish off I added the big 50 to the right hand corner and called it done!
I hope you have wonderful celebrations Sandie, and I look forward to meeting you in real life at the HLS retreat later in the summer.
