Hand Lettering #6: Happy Birthday Sentiment, Cursive Style (Digital Freebie)

Hello everyone!!! :o)

Today I want to share with you another hand lettering project that I made during my personal challenge, Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces. It's a sentiment 'happy birthday' written in a cursive handwriting style.

I wrote the sentiment numerous times on mixed media paper scraps (not all shown on a photo below), using a dip pen nib and black drawing ink.

The one I liked most, I scanned and transferred it to a digital format, which I decided to share here as a freebie. :o)


Feel free to download the sentiment and use it on your handmade projects. Please be respectful to my artwork and read an Angel Policy and Terms of Use. :o)

I would love to see your creations using my digital sentiment, so feel free to add links in comment section so I could visit you. :o)

Thank you for stopping by and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)

Mandala Birthday Cards

Hi everyone!!! :o)

I hope you're enjoying your weekend. :o) Today I want to share with you these two, one layer, Mandala Birthday Cards.



I went with same design and layout as on my Watercolored Blue Mandala Cards that I shared on my blog earlier this year, only this time, I included big bold sentiment in the design. :o)

I used a gorgeous Create a Smile 'Mandala' cling stamp and beautiful sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Birthday Wishes' stamp set.

For card bases I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

heat embossed in clear the Mandala and stamped the sentiment in black directly on top folded card bases.

I colored cards in watercolor technique using two Distress Inks for each and a lot of water (see detailed supply list below). I added colors in layers, drying them between. When I was satisfied with colors, I splattered cards with the Distress Inks I used for coloring.



As a finishing touch, I coated Mandalas and word 'wishes' on both cards with Clear Wink of Stella. Shimmer, shimmer... LOVE it!!! :o)
