Becca's Birthday Bash

I've been MIA again! Well today I plan to make up for it, with  3 cards - Yay!
I've been for a card-making catch up with Lyndal (of Ideas and Paper) and so I took along my box of unfinished stuff and voila!

I decided to play along with the link-up over at Becca's blog (The Damsel of Distressed)  to celebrate her Birthday. The rules are to make something inspired by Becca's mood board. Luckily I had a few things in my stash that suited this theme.

The image in this card is from Hero Arts, it's coloured with distress markers and ink and I used a Lil' Inkers die to cut the circle shape.

This gorgeous image is from Penny Black and I used Inktense Pencils and Peerless watercolours to colour the image.

The bird stamp is from Dina Wakely and the sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
It may not be obvious, but I've used foil on the bird and on the grungy background. 
So there you go Becca - 3 cards for your Birthday linky - thanks for the inspiration!


  1. WOW...this is series of awesomeness!! Sooo sooo cool cards....and I am sure Becca is gonna love it!! :)
    Suchi xx

  2. Awwwww I love them all!! They are all so unique and different! The shaped circle is so pretty with the water color vibrancy! And I love the second card. Coloring outside the lines gives such an artsy feel. That paper pieced (or I guess foil pieced) bird is AMAZING! I am so grateful to have blight friends like you to help make my birthday so special!

  3. Wow Jenny, these are all so beautiful! Loving the bright colours, so wonderful for the summer time. Great water colour effect on the first one, completely loving your birds too! hugs :)

  4. Wow .. three beautiful cards Jenny! LOVE your first one with the watercoloured images. Fantastic technique and I love the mix of images and colours. LOVE the butterfly card with all the bright colours ... and the bird with the foil --- have not tried that heat foil yet, but it is so cool --- something to add to my wish list! :) xx

  5. All of your cards are amazing! My favorite is the circle w/bird - I'm a bird addict! lol Just gorgeous.

  6. so the watercolour look Jenny....

  7. Gorgeous gorgeousness! Love all of them Karen
