Happy Birthday Paulette


Happy Birthday Paulette!

This is a blog hop for you
from all of us from the Design Team of
We all made you a birthday 
card with a wonderful image from you.

 Want to know how I did this?
I started with saving (right mouse click) this wonderful
image to my computer.
It was here for 24 hours (now you can buy it in
the Create with TLC digi shop HERE)
 Next  take a few distress stain colors and a non-stick
craft sheet. Put some drops of the stains on the sheet.
Hold the printed side of the paper towards the sheet
and wipe some ink on the paper.
This is how it looks. If some parts are not covered wipe it again.

When satisfied, dry it with your heat gun.
Take a brush and use some left over drops to
give the flowers and the leaves some extra color.
With a drop of bleach i colored the dove white.
Also the hearts of the flowers.
 From a piece of cut of some small flowers are punched
for the dove panel in the image. They are added to
the branches with little brads.
The next card you will find on
Carla's blog

Have a wonderful and creative day!

This is wonderful! Thanks for showing how you did it, w/ the pictures. I like photos, Im a visual person, so when someone just talks about how they did something I dont retain it as well. I love your punched out flowers too! You have done a GREAT job on Paulette's B-day card! Thanks for the freebie! And I have wished Paulette a Happy Birthday!
