Hi everyone, I was asked to make a masculine 21st birthday card for a country guy.
Thought I'd try this second hand retired set from Stampin Up.
I stamped the image with archival jet black ink onto a leftover piece of brushos watercolour paper. It had the orangey yellow pops of colour on it. Then I inked the edges with fossilized amber, hickory smoke and walnut stain distress oxides. Spritzed on some water and got a great mottled look.
I inked the very edge with normal black soot distress ink and matted the image onto a copper layer, then a kraft layer inked with walnut stain. I used a distress tool to add texture to the edges.
I had some canvas pad scraps left from another project and punched out some corners. Inked them with walnut stain then embossed with versamark and bronze powder. The 21 is also embossed with this powder, and the coppery sentiment sticker finished it off. The black card was textured when I bought it, looks a bit like wood grain. Hope he likes his card!
I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday,
Snippets for the layers and corners means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, you only need 1 snippet or scrap to join in!
At Seize the Birthday it's anything goes so long as it's a birthday theme.
Time Out has a bold theme. I think the black silhouette on the orangey inks looks bold.
At The Male Room the theme is recycle. I've used brush and canvas scraps in this panel. Never throw anything away lol!!
