A day for Celebrating with Hobby Art.

Evening Everyone
Well yesterday really was a day for celebrating. As well as my friend Danny's 50th it was also the birthday of my sister Tracy (I will be nice and not let on which one lol) and Haider one of the guys that I work with at the BP garage.
This is the card I sent my sister. It was made using Floral Border and Floral Branch, both from Hobby Art.
I stamped and embossed the images onto blue card stock and then painted them with thin undiluted bleach. You might have to experiment with your card stock since not all will bleach out.
 Once this has been done I then coloured the images with colouring pencils. Because you have bleached the card to start with the colour of the pencils shows up much better.
The card I gave Haider was also made using a Hobby Art stamp, Koi Carp Jewel.
I used the same bleaching technique only this time I painted the Koi with dye based ink.
Both cards have been mounted in a similar manner using a combination of torn card and woollen threads.
I have been working all weekend on some new Hobby Art samples for Jenny's next TV show.
She will be on Create and Craft channel 671 next Sunday (29th January) at 2pm and 7pm, unless they change the times on us.

I would like to enter these into the following challenges
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge 40 Birthday Wording on the Front.
Lets Ink it Up - Challenge 19 Anything Goes
ABC Challenges  - H for Happy Birthday

Hope you have had a good weekend.
