I must get my thinking cap on and design a card for a young friend who has a birthday in a couple of weeks time. He is a very clever young chap with a lively interest in many things - so what will I choose for my subject? So far, I haven't come up with a satisfactory idea but when I do, I will post the card here for you to see - after his birthday of course! It is only fair he should see it first!
In the interim here is a card I made for him previously. As I said, he is a bright young thing, so the academic theme seemed appropriate.
The background has been stamped on brown card and heat embossed using clear powder. The stamp I used for this is from Impression Obsession and is called Bookshelves - no surprise there then! The main elements are from a Sheena Douglass stamp set from her Little Bit Magical range called Knowledge. I have stamped onto Sheena White Stamping Card, blended a bit of distress ink around the edges and also across the card. I have then splashed a few drops of water and blotted. Images are coloured with a variety of watercolours and finally I have sprinkled on some Stampendous Frantage Aged Green embossing enamel and heated.
