Hello everyone!

Hope you guys are kickin! I have a masculine card for you today!! WOOT WOOT! Accomplishment! LOL and I have to show you my very first birthday RAK too. First on with the card which is based on the sketch at Card Patterns.

DSC03301 

Can you see that the texty paper I have used is a actually from a newspaper? It is from the business section :P I have coloured and distressed the newspaper with watercolours and added faux stitching to it.

The stars you see are hand drawn, cut, coloured with gold marker, distressed with brown marker plus my good ol finger and then embossed!

I ran gold net and jute string behind the centre embellishment to comply with the sketch. The sentiment is the same one I gave as freebie in my last post. I think the sentiment is great for dads who are in Forces (armed, air, navy.. you get the point).

I have coloured over my printed sentiment (the bold words) with colour pencils to give it a stamped look. I have also added a few lines etc using Photoshop for a grungy effect.

 

BIRTHDAY RAK:

Now on to the RAK. Can you believe this is the first ever birthday RAK I got? And oh my, I felt so good.. SO GOOD!

Here is the card and stuff Spardha sent my way…
