Birthday Invites

I have been asked by a lovely friend if I would make her invitations for her 30th birthday and the request was colourful and dragons!! Well colourful I could do, but dragons??? (even though my kids think I could be one!!!) - lucky my friend had a couple of dragon stamps on hand so all was good.

We ended up deciding on 10 different colours with eight invites of each colour. Anyway, here they all ready to be written on:-
From left to right we have Purple, Orange, Yellow and Black. We have colour co-ordinated the invitations to match each other.

This next lot we have are Silver, Red, Teal and Pink.
For the last two colours we have chosen Blue and Green. Now some of the colours are Stampin' Up! but as I did not have enough of some colours to do the whole lot we ended up using a variety of other cardstock but all the ink pads we used were Stampin' Up! It's hard to tell from the pics but we did clear emboss the bottom dragon in Basic Black and coloured them with blender pens and the ink pads. The top dragons are stamped in colours and then clear embossed.

They are not the best of photos as we have had some overcast days here and I took these ones indoors.

Happy stamping,
