Seize The Birthday - One Layer


Welcome to a new challenge at Seize The Birthday.  This time it's One Layer - scary for some, but I'm happy making one layer cards.  If it's not your thing, you can still play along with any birthday-themed project.


Ooh, I do like playing with these Jane Davenport stamps!  I used a very limited Distress Ink palette to watercolour, and a 0.5 fineliner to add a bit more detail.  The small sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from our surprise party guest, Kreative Kristie, and the rest of the team, and join in the birthday fun!

I'm entering this into CAS Watercolour Challenge - Birthdays

  6. I think it's so bizarre that I'd never heard the name Jane Davenport before yesterday - when your gorgeous card popped up in my IG feed moments after Michael's feed introduced her new line!
    You've given her such flair, and panache, Shirley!
