Magical Birthday Wishes by Cheryl Wright
I recently discovered a new technique for colouring backgrounds. It's very quick and easy, and is done using shaving brushes!
To try this technique, I went to my local $2 shop and bought a couple of brushes. The above card was my first attempt, and as you can see, the pink came out a little streaky. I have since come to discover you need a very light hand when doing this technique. Subsequent cards were much better.
This was an extremely quick and simple card to make, and after this one, I ended up making four more. All five will be going to Combat Cards in the very near future.
This card uses the following stamps:
Greeting: Gina K Designs (from a very old set)
Stars: Star Cluster by Lavinia Stamps
Main image: Mushrooms from Stamp-It Australia
I hope you've enjoyed this card. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time!
