Inspired by Sian

Today is my day on the WOW! blog and the theme of the month was to be inspired by one of my talented team mates. I picked a card by Sian Ridley that was so clever with windows showing the pretty background. I just got one of the new background stamps in my last package from WOW, and it is so pretty. It's called Tropical. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color it, I just borrowed a demo set to try out and it takes some practicing. They are not blending like my Copics are but I think that is just technique and I'm getting better. Anyways, I made it into a birthday card since it's my birthday today :) 


I was really happy with this card, I loved Sians card and will use this design again to show off more pretty background stamps I think. Here is Sians card that I used as my inspiration.

I hope you'll have a great day. I'm sure I will. There will be cake later today. I even got my own cake this year, I usually just put my name on my daughters cake since her birthday is on Friday. I guess we'll have cake twice this week then. I don't mind at all!

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
