Happy birthday

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create Guest DT post I have made a 6 x 6 card (or journal page). 

This is going to be my last post for at least 6 months as I have decided I want to reduce my workload and concentrate on some other things besides paper crafting. I might be back later in the year, I might not be.... 

Here's how:

I coloured this piece of paper with Distress Oxide ink (Salty Ocean) and then used the stencil over the top with white acrylic paint. 

I did some background stamping...

The focal point ! I totally love Miss Dee ! I coloured her with Copic Markers.

Instead of a sentiment I decided to use washi tape saying Happy Birthday. It also serves as a place for Miss Dee to stand. 

I placed her in the middle which I normally don't do but this time I wanted to surround her with balloons. 

The balloons came from this ephemera pack. 

Here she is enjoying her birthday ! 

I have used the following materials, all by Janet Klein

Washi tape #55 - Brithday Bumps
Stencil #187 - Naughty Crosses
Ephemera #20 - Palooza Confetti
#961 - Birthday Dee
#338 - Background Noise
#495 - + Or X
#973 - Equations
