Birthday sparklers


This is another effort making a background by gellli plate printing - this time I blotted out quite a few ares and used a piece of sequin waste lightly as a stencil, mixed red and blue for purple and got this print, to which I added some 'sparklers' using the Penny Black stamp, using a Sakura glaze pen on parts of them. The sentiment is a Creata textured rub on.


This is for:

Penny Black May: anything goes
ABC 29: stamped backgrounds
Daring cardmakers: stencil it!
CCEE 1320: let it all hang out or over (stamping over the edge)
Gingerloft: happy birthday
4 crafty chicks 142: birthday
Addicted to CAS 13: birthday
Sentimental Sunday 155: clean and simple
The rubber buggy 7: anything goes
Sister act 7: anythging goes

When Santa got stuck up the chimney ...


Week 18 (a couple of weeks ago) on Facebook Sunday's with Santa was 'humour'. So this made me think of the song 'When Santa got stuck up the chimney' and it was a good opportunity to use one of my fun Christmas stamps (one by Anita that I bought some years ago). I inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir CR10. I cut with a nestie die which I edged with spectrum noir DR3.

I followed the sketch for Merry Monday 63 (I was surprised to see that I was chosen as the top pic for last week's Merry Monday and will be their guest next week):


I printed the song and then added the banners using my Die-namics fishtail dies, writing Ho! Ho! Ho! by hand. The sparkly, shiny brads are by Teresa Collins.
