Birthday Card

This birthday card was especially created for Jackie.
Jackie I hope that you had a fabulous day.
The pattern is by Sjaak "Stitch and Do" set number 16.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0453 & 3251.
Dandelion Posies die by Sue Wilson CED1482.
Oval die by Nellie Snellen MFD057 
For the coloured background, I decided to try a new method that I had seen on 
It is a Tissue paper watercolour technique by Loll  watch the video it's very easy to
 learn and so much fun!!!!!
I have since been busy creating backgrounds using this wonderful fun technique.
I have used Tim Holtz distress inks, Wild Honey, Dusty Concord & Peeled Paint.
Clear Versamark, Gold embossing powder and my heatgun were also used.
Tulle is coloured with Wild Honey, pearls have also been added.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Thank you fo coming by and looking at My Craft Cupboard.
