I have had a few male birthdays this month, so I thought I would share my cards with you.
I started them at a workshop then finished them off at home.
For the first one I have used a Sweet Poppy Stencil, the Dolphin
I used distress oxides for the background and stenciled the dolphin in black archival ink, but used grey for the rays, then I cleaned it off and flipped it over and did the same image in grey for a reflection.
I added a sentiment to finish
This 2nd one I have used Visible image Jazz it up stamps and visible image stencil, strobes.
I coloured the background in distress oxides and inked up the Jazz it up stamp in versa fine black onyx ink, then with the strobes stencil I inked my darker colour then drew around the strobes with a white pen and stamped some random shapes, which I outlined in both black and white pen.
I had a cello made from greyboard which I painted black and added the music stamp to it, which I heat embossed in gold embossing powder.
I added the music sheet paper for the main image to be mat and layered onto,
and finished off with a pre cut sentiment and letters.
My final card for the month was made using the same method as above and the visible image Jazz it up stamp, and strobes, I finished this one off by stamping some circles using bottle tops and added my sentiments.
