3rd Birthday Card - Stamper Anonymous - On The Farm
Our little Grand Son Jacob, is celebrating his 3rd Birthday. Jakie is our little star. He was born with Downs Syndrome and had a very difficult first year, mostly spent in hospital. He is a little behind other children of the same age but he is the most loving little fella you could wish to meet.
In making this card I wanted to make him laugh, so I positioned the farm animal on top of each other. The animal stamps are part of a set by Stampers Anonymous and is called "On The Farm CMS303". I stamped the animals in different shades of Versafine ink and coloured with Promarkers.
Using a wash of Distress Oxide paints, I created the background colour. When dry, I stamped the line of trees using a Lavinia Stamp called "Trees" stamped in Versafine "Smokey Grey" ink.
The grass tufts and orange flowers are stamps from a Papertrey Ink stamp set called "Love Lives Here", stamped in Versafine Clair ink.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card. The "3rd" was part of a free set of stamps from a magazine. The "Happy Birthday" stamps I have had for years and don't recall who made them.
