Happy Birthday Amy !! :-)

Hi all :-) Amy is celebrating her 19th birthday today with a pool party, BBQ and a sleepover ,,,


This week on the Papertake Weekly Dawny is asking us to choose a previous PTW sketch :-) This was quite diffy as I do love all Dawny’s sketches ,,, invariably simple ,,, :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi over at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher for one lucky entrant :-) Did you see the All New Just In pages ,,, fabby new stuff !! :-)


I followed sketch No 27

Of course I had to make Amy a card this week and as part of her pressie is a trip to London ( so sad that she grew out of Barbie’s ,,, much cheaper ,,,,, :-)) Anyways ,,,, I thought I would use 2 Penny Black stamps, La Soiree and Tower Bridge and make it look like she was walking along the Embankment,, she is not walking on water across the Thames !!!! :-)

I stamped Tower Bridge using Archival ink onto Neenah card ( though I should have used watercolor ) and coloured with Distress ink markers and ink pads. I then stamped La Soiree with Memento, coloured with copics and cut out. I sort of ticked glossy accents across her dress and sprinkled with red tinsel glitter to create lines of sparkle and added highlights using a white Galaxy marker and smudging. I used Basic GreyLife of the Party papers and the lovely Velvet Blossoms were in the August card Kit and aren’t they just GORGEOUS ! I added a little black gem to the centre and popped one on her bag and 2 over a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish cut out of black card.

I used a MFT Retro Squares border die, Amy Tangerine Thickers for the No19 and a Hero Arts Sentiment to finish :-)

Edited to add a photo of Amy and her boyfriend, Ben, on a recent trip to London :-)
