21st Birthday Card

Wow, where has the last 11 days gone. I've been busy visiting our gorgeous new Grandson Andrew, then I had an order from a friend for 7 cards, 4 of them 21st birthday cards to the same person (male) from different family members. I also decided that as I had not touched my knitting machines for the last 3 years that I would sell them. So I took a photo popped it onto eBay with a buy it now price thinking it would sit there for the 4 weeks and sold it within 1 hour. The person who bought it then wanted to pick it up the following day, so I had to quickly find and pack all the bits and pieces that go with it. Still it's now gone and I have more space, but hubby has banned me from filling it with crafting stuff.

Anyway onto my card today. I was given a small list of interests (very small) one of them being Party's, so I got out the Visible Image stamps that I bought at Ally Pally earlier this year. I started with a 6x6 piece of card and blended mowed lawn, salty ocean and peacock feather distress inks onto it. Then using a Clarity stencil (Jo's Bubbles) and some white ink I set about doing a Bokah technique, it was the first time I'd done this and I'm pleased with the result. Next using the drummer, the singer and the guitarist I stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink on top. I used some blue card for the matting and some green card for the background which was made up of the word stamps that came with the stamps in different shades of green. The sentiment was cut using All Occasions dies. Hopefully I'll be back soon.

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
