We needed a masculine birthday card for someone who was turning 85 last Thursday. Masculine cards are always difficult for me...........so Pinterest was my source of inspiration once again. I ran across a card that had been cased from one that Michelle Zindorf had made. The technique they used was "direct to paper" using the ink pads. I did not have good success doing it that way. By sponging the colors on instead I was much happier with the results that I got.
You can see Michelle Zindorf's card here: Serene Silhouette – Tutorial #542 |
Instead of the silhouette image that they used, I pulled out one of the stamps from Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree. I also drew some little birds into the "sky" and added some random dashes with a white gel pen to the "water".
This is a design I believe I will use again. It was easy and I was very pleased with the results. What do you think? I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by!
