Molly Blooms Farm Yard Birthday Card

It's been weeks since my last post and for this I apologise, for whatever reason I lost that thing called Mojo having said this I had a pleasant afternoon painting this Molly Bloom stamp which I've decoupaged onto watercolour paper, once this was done I decided to take the opportunity to create a birthday card, it's a simple enough card no frills or surprises but I have to admit I really like the simplicity of it.

I do have an issue the larger Molly Bloom stamps, the one above just fit my 6" x 4" acrylic block and with my Christmas scenic Molly Bloom I had to resort to using a DVD case which I found really difficult to centre and stamp evenly probably due to me having small hands!!   If anyone has found a better alternative to using the larger stamps I would love to know.  There was also a problem with the above stamp despite stamping the image a few times for the decoupage there was an area of the tree which did not make contact with the paper fortunately I managed to fill the gap with paint so that it was not noticeable.  Anyways it's nice to be back and I hope you like my latest effort.

Oops nearly forgot I coloured the image with inks on watercolour paper keeping a watercolour effect as I painted.
