Did a little road trip last week to visit one of my uncles who was turning 70. My mum comes from a large family and as a youngster, I loved those family occasions where I would get together with all my cousins. I have so many wonderful memories of those times. In fact, I have vague memories of the 21st Birthday of this same uncle on the family farm which has since been sold. I was about 5 years old at the time.
Here is the card I created for him. It was inspired by Esther Howard at Stampin' Star Creations. It was a lot of fun to make but very product heavy. I used seven different stamp sets for all my stamping but don't let this put you off. The same result can be achieved by repeating one, two or three stamps. What you want to end up with is a wall that looks like its been graffiti-ed.
It's a wall of 'Happy Birthday' graffiti. Cool hey!
To stamp all the images, I set them up on the Stamparatus and used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour each stamp. You could easily stamp each image separately and use the Stamp Pads.
