Today I want to share the birthday card I've made for my dad :-)
I combined his card with the current challenge over on the Paperartsy blog which is all about paint - click HERE to find out more.
My project was heavily based on Anneke's journal page which I thought was so beautiful, you can visit it HERE. So here it is my take on it:
I used masking tape on the background first and then grunge paste through a JOFY stencil before covering with the new limited edition Lin Brown paints. I kept my design very similar to Anneke's project and used the same colours she did.
I sanded back most of the paint from the grunge paste and stamped the new wicked chickens from new Lin Brown set ELB18 and the sentiment from JOFY26.
I stamped the chickens again onto book paper, cut out and added to the card. Then used Snowflake and Little Black Dress through a TCW stencil.
Finally I added a smudge of charcoal pencil under the chickens to give them something to stand on :-)
To finish I mounted onto some black card and then onto an 8x8 card blank.
Hopefully Dad will like it - it's not really a traditional male card!!
Thanks for looking,
