June Happy Birthday

Hi Friends,

Today I'm posting a card I made for a very good friend of mine, whose birthday is just a day apart from mine :-) She's an open, generous, kind, strong and very very beautiful lady who I absolutely admire and am very happy to be friends with. Happy Birthday, my dear!

I made my card using Make It Crafty hair colouring tutorial (was that not fun!!!!), it took me a while to finish the image, but I am happy with the end result and am itching to try the colouring technique with some other colors :-) Background layer is done with the use of 6X6 stencil by The Crafters Workshop and gold embossing paste Ferro, so I'm entering my card into Simon Says Stamp weekly challenge, which is to use stencils this week.
Thank you for dropping by and have a wonderful day!

Happy Fathers' Day!

Hi Friends,

Today I'm posting a card that I made for my dad this year :-) I honestly cannot remember the stamp's manufacturer, as I tore the rubber off its mounting a while ago to save some storage space :-) I'd wanted to use this stamp for ages, but for some odd reason failed to do so, and the image stayed uncoloured/unloved embarrassingly long... Anyway, last night was the night :-) and here is the result. I love the outcome, to be honest :-) I had fun playing with the embossing folder & powder, with Spellbinders' dies and my Copic markers :-)

To all the dads out there, happy Fathers' Day! May your kids be healthy and prosperous! That's the best reward for being great dads, right? :-)
