Tilda birthday card

Here's a birthday card for a 10 yr daughter of a friend. Nothing much to it.. Just simple watercoloring with Faber-Castell pencils, tons of glitter on the cake..and yes, overdone stamping at the edges...but its still cool. Getting a handmade card is a big deal and I know she'll love it.

And of course there a lot of stamps used..the Tilda is a gift from Taru, the happy birthday sentiment inside the card is from a local stamp store, Hobby Ideas.

The stamps at the back of the card are custom made stamps, one from a local stamp store (the one with 100% handmade). Sadly rubber stamps, even business stamps are made from nylon not rubber and it gives a very bad impression on the paper the other one is from Heart and Soul Rubber stamps, Waving hi to Sue.... ( you can see the difference between the nylon impression and the rubber stamp impression)

And how can I forget to show a close up of the glitter on the card..

The card might look dark, but its not..I've just run a burnt edge action on it...Just to make it look super-cool.


CS-Fabriano 220lbs double sided textured paper. PP-DCWV, Papermania colossal stack, Faber-Castell watercolor pencils, uni-ball glitter pen.
