Happy birthday splash!

Hello friends

You know how gold foiling can lend itself to elegance,
indulgence and quality?  Well...this is another take on it,
bright and fun!

I've used Faux Script Happy Birthday and Heart Flourishes hot foil plates
over a wash of Distress Oxides on watercolour card.
It sort of looks like a painting palette or my lounge with tester pots!

I then matted with foil card and found a bright sunny background patterned paper.

Again, really simple to do with effective results.
If you are someone who creates charity cards or cards to sell,
these can be generated with speed! 

Items used today with clickable links:

If you prefer the more elegant look with hot foiling,
take a look at the new plates that have arrived designed by 
Becca Feeken - wow they are gorgeous.

This is just one design, you can find them all here.

I received a lovely email from Michele yesterday
who has made up this month's charity kit as a Christmas card.
Looks fantastic, thank you Michele.

More kits are still available along with previous charity kits
and workshop kits on the website here.

Take care friends, please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.
