My Pisces Son

Hello! The sun is shining here in South Wales and we have some fantastic inspiration from Jane Tyrrell here on the blog today…

Good morning, it’s time for my weekly dose of Visible Image inspiration and for today I can finally share the card I made for my son for his birthday on 24 February.

Daisy (my granddaughter) helped me make a quick lemon sponge birthday cake for her uncle (my son is not a fan of cake and this was a version he prefers of my standard Victoria sandwich cake). She so proudly carried it in..

and helped him blow out the candles..

We had such a fab day together, special family time.

So now to share his card!

I used the following stamps…

Pisces from the Zodiac collection..

and Elemental background stamp..

Plus the Time Tunnel stencil..

I made my background with acrylic inks plus some Lindy’s sprays which have a gorgeous sheen. It’s so hard to show in a photo taken in the evening when I was working.

As it was A4 size I cut it up

I added some background stamping using elemental

and some stencilling using white ink.

I stamped and embossed some of the fish and all the Pisces words onto black card and fussy cut them out.

I then put my card design together…

As I had some spare pieces of this background I also made a bookmark for him. I added 2 fish..

and cut up the letters of the Pisces word and mounted them on snippets of black card..

Here are both projects together…

A close up to show the cool elemental stamped background…

and a final collage…

My daughter is also a Pisces and her birthday is coming up next week, so I will be sharing a very different Pisces card for her next Monday…. she now lives at the seaside, so I knew the just the theme to use.

Enjoy your week, we have a very special little 4 year old visitor coming to stay today until Thursday… yes my darling Daisy Jane. No doubt the minute she gets here she will want to start some crafting ?
Must dash, I have a sweet girlie to collect….

Back soon.

Bye for now,
