My dearest and bestie from London, Sandie, is celebrating her 50th birthday today! Happy Birthday Sandie. Seeing you are MORE than over the Hill, I thought we had better throw you a surprise linky party. Many thanks to Sarah Platt for her help in this devious plan as well :)
Sandie, by now you should have had a cuppa tea made so sit back and relax as crafters from all over the world link up to help celebrate your birthday.
Here is my card -
Please forgive my photography. I had to take these at night due to time constraints at the moment.
For this card, I have used new to me watercolouring paper by YUPO. I used the heaviest weight available (390gsm / 144lb). This paper is different to anything I have tried before. To me, it is a cross between watercolour paper, mixed media paper and glossy cardstock.
The results were pretty cool even though I was a novice at using it.
I gave the paper a little mist with water then sprinkled Brushos on to the water. I moved the Brusho around a bit then patted it dry with a paper towel. I then added another 'layer' of Brusho and got it quite wet to get lots of runs. I used my heat gun to dry it off.
Be careful when stamping on this as it really is like glossy cardstock.
I have used the following HLS products for this card -
YUPO watercolour paper, Butterfly Bithday stamp set, Mix Mash stamp set, Butterfly Dies and Enamel Dots.
Thank you to everyone in advance that joins in with this surprise linky party for Sandie!
Also, over at TimeOut they are having a special post for Sandie as well! You girls rock. The theme is CAS with the optional twist of purple!
