Birthday surf.

Hi everyone, been busy here for a while as both of my parents have been in and out of hospital.
My step dad is still there, hoping his procedure is a success!

This was a quick card to make for a friend's birthday.
I blended on a few blue distress oxide inks and spritzed with water. Love the textured effect it created. The surfer is a retired Stampin Up image, stamped in archival jet black ink.

I'm linking up to the water themed challenge at Seize the Birthday.

At Addicted to CAS it's a masculine theme.
I'm hoping the inky blue background is ok as "white"space.

It's a CAS theme at Addicted to Stamps & More.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the theme is distress it.
