Relax - it's you birthday!
I don't have many male cards in my stock of finished cards which is sometimes a problem when my husband asks if I have a card he could send to one of his friends, so I thought I'd better make one or two. Here is the first.
On white card which had some sort of woven surface I used the "ink, blot, plot" method to create a faint background. The stamps used were two of Chocolate Baroque's landscape edges and I used distress inks. This I then matted and layered onto black mirri card and white card. A further strip of black mirri card was added to the left hand side.
The main image is Lili of the Valley's lazy afternoon and I coloured this using Promarkers and distress ink. I cut it out using a Spellbinders postage stamp die, coloured the edges with a black Promarker pen and attached it to the card using foam pads.
I made a banner and two mini labels from peel off letters, white card, black mirri card and thin ribbon. Finally I added some card candi.
