Hi there everybody. This is a card I made for my brother-in-law who has one of those more significant birthdays to celebrate, today actually, hopefully he will have received the card, and anyway he doesn't look at my blog so it's safe to show it. He is a very keen walker so I thought this Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy stamp called Across the Fence would be a good one to use.
I cut a piece of white card roughly 6" square and stamped the image using Versafine Smokey Gray Ink. I then coloured it using a variety of Distress Inks and a waterbrush.
I cut the image back and mounted it on to another piece of white card which had been cut with a Crealies Pierced Rectangle die.
I finished by adding the sentiment and the numbers which I die cut from white card and then coloured with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. For small items like sentiments and numbers I have got into the habit of using a dryish wet wipe wrapped round my finger (I used one that had been sitting on my table for a while) which makes it easier to get into all the little areas and seems to help get smooth coverage. I then mounted it on to a 6" square white card.
In case you wonder what that orangy red blob is amongst the trees, it is the roof of a house. I made it quite bright because I thought if it was more slate coloured it might be a bit difficult to see.
Thanks for dropping by today and I'll see you again soon.
I am entering the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Time Out (who wouldn't love to take some 'time out' walking through this beautiful countryside).
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes.
