Aaron and Elysha turn 24 today. Its amazing to think 24 years have gone past and so
many things have changed in our lives.I think its time they moved out but this generation truly have us worked out. Lucky I love them so much. As the others all glare and pout over the things they get away with..... you made us blah blah blah. Yeah I know kids I love you all but it comes down to its always easier when there are only two and well I cant image having an empty nest just yet.
Better get back to track here. This is the card I have made for to day for Aaron. Nothing too stroppy or tizzy being a boy. I have been buying boy stamps but not 24 year old stamp appropriate so I decided he would love this one. He's keen to have a dog (told him he has to leave to have one) so always showing me cute little puppies.
This is one I got in a set from Gerda Steiner Stamps (currently sold out but will be back soon). Fantastic set and glad I have finally started using the stamps.
stamped and Copic coloured, added a bit of texture with colourless blender on a scrap of towel but its not really showing here. Added some grass under his feet and stamped the sentiment with a multi colour stamp pad in greens. Then decided to add a strip of copic coloured Yupo synthetic paper. This stuff is amazing and I have found it reasonably cheap on Ebay lately if you are interested. Its fantastic as its so smooth, hard to explain but fantastic for use with alcohol inks.
So cut a strip and played it alongside the coloured image. Finished off with a sweet little green bone covered in glitter. and .....and.... finally a watermark, just have to learn to use it, curtesy of Viv who also designed my blog header.
Here I am sharing the card Elysha wanted badly for me to give to her as she loves rainbows. Made this a week or so ago.
