Sunny Birthday Wishes by Samantha Read


Hello, Happy Wednesday! 
Here's a card I made for January's Hochanda shows, it was great fun to make, quick and easy too for those last minute cards you may need to make.

What I did

I began by making a 5ins x 5 ins kraft card and using the wonderful Mandala stencil applied white gesso. I then stamped the sun image on white card and kraft card, I cut out the kraft card sun and just the eyes and lips of the white card sun and adhered in place as shown. Using the Silver Lustre Spray I added some splashes/splats and using a couple of alphabet stamp sets from my stash I stamped the text. To finish I added some 3D Gloss Gel Medium to the eyes so they shine.

What I used

(From my stash: Alphabet stamp sets by Dovecraft)

I do hope you like it, thanks for looking and have a lovely day, Sam xx
