Monochrome Daddy’s birthday Card

I followed several challenges making this card.  Firstly it is a one layer card – I have stamped diectly onto the cardbase using Papermania brown pigment ink.  I used a variety of stamps rfom my stash, the bunting stamp was free in a magazine and the letters are again Papermania.  I decided to stamp over the gold border line and then ink around the dges  omake a frame.  It was a bit of an experiment but I was very happy with the end result, let’s hope my hubby will be too!


The challenges I am entering are: – one layer card – monochrome – birthday card – stamp along the edges – banners – one for the boys – monochromatic

Thank you so much for taking a look at my card – please stop back again soon.

Creative Moments DT card

This week’s theme is embossing, dry or heat.  I have made one card using a digistamp from Doodle Garden; it was coloured with Promarkers and then I used a Versamarker pen to heat emboss the snowflake.   I made it into a thank you card using a sentiment from Hunkydory.

The second card is made using a Little Claire’s stamp, ‘the owl tree’.  I used Versa Colour brown to stamp the image onto pearlescent card, then Papermania Champagne  gold embossing powder, which when combined give the lovely golden bronze colour.
