Have a Happy Birthday


I'm thrilled to say that the kraft tags I made for the Penny Black Holiday Tag Challenge were a winner! Just had to share that.

But back to today.  The challenge at Lawnscaping is to use text in your project.


And the challenge at ColourQ is to use these colours:

I've had this ransom alphabet (Clear Stamps), unused, for a long time. So long, in fact, that the stamps were very attached to the storage sheet and didn't want to part company with it. But I was very careful, and managed not to rip any.  The letters were stamped onto white card and coloured with Tombows, then cut out and stuck onto the main card. Pen lines around the outside edges of the card were drawn with a Staedtler 0.05 Pigment Liner.
