BECCA'S BIRTHDAY BASH... & bits'n'pieces:

Good day one & all. Well, BECCA C [fabulous crafty mate] has turned 30.
And to celebrate she's GIVING [which is what she's like] stuff away!
To join in, you just need to use her mood board [which is SOOO Becca!!!].
Here's the card she made:
Cool, huh?
I REALLY like the brights & the swirls on the moodboard.
I thought I'd do a bit of wax crayon resist with Gelatos over top.
Swirl the crayon around. Get a bit of a pattern going.
Used watercolour paper. Big mistake. My swirls were 'naive' in the extreme.
It looked disgusting. Well, except for the colours.
 WHAT TO DO?????
Obv a crappy card bg. It looked like a drunk snail. Not the best birthday look!
Here's how my mind works.!
Accordion bloom [thanks Mitra who had one up recently!!]
Ahhh HAH!
THEN my mind went.
Drunk...... booze........fair........flags fluttering in the breeze. YEEEEES!
So out came the Big Shot & this is my card:
Based on the mood board, originally, with input from the Drunken Snail.
No reflection on Becca there, who I'm sure was the height of decorum as she
celebrated being 30.
Either ways, HAPPY BIRTHDAY & thanks for being the lovely, sharing person you are:)
Oh.The card, yeah.......
Blessings ~ & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  2. I can only imagine what a driunken snail would be like, crazy thought! But great end result, love the big rosette flower and the banners! Why do you think you didn't like the look on water color paper? Just asking so I can learn.. I hope you have a great Wednesday!
