YOU’RE 4 TODAY – Happy Birthday Stephen

Today is Stephens birthday, and unbelievably he is 4 – where have those years gone.
Stephen has grown up and changed a lot over the last 6 months, and we are entering a new phase in his young life and he is definatly developing his own unique personality.

I am really pleased with my card (actually its more like a scrapbook page as it is 12 x12 inches.)
Again using my new Buccaneer cartridge for the Imagine, it wasn’t too hard for the idea to come together.

What I do like doing at the moment is printing the Imagine images straight onto patterned paper. Like I did here, the shipwrecked ship in the background is printed on to paper loosely resembling the atmosphere under the sea.

 With the help of distress inks and distress stickles, all the images come to life.

To highlight the flag, I outlined with a gold Krylon pen, and added the toothpick (stained with walnut stain distress ink)

I’d like to say thank you very much for Stephens cards and presents.

    I love the card you made Claire and i think it's a fabulous cartridge there is so much you can do with it,for boys and girls and yes I hate to say it even some of the men in the family would appreciate a card made from this cartridge :-). The cards made by Rita are lovely too and seeing as Stephen is into octonauts at the moment the first one from Rita is spot on don't you think?
