Birthday Cards


I had to make a couple of males cards for birthdays on Thursday.  My nephew and brother in law.  



The backgrounds were created using lots of ink sprays, denim and stream from the TH range and cyan and aubergine from the dylusions range. I used the black eco-friendly acrylic paint to create the lines and circles.  I used my new distrezz it tool around all the edges and coloured them with faded jeans distress stain.  I ran a piece of DCWV white core card through the circles embossing folder and sanded it back. I stamped the birthday wishes and glued them on.

Really effective and a good way to circumnavigate those 'difficult' male cards.
