Another new technique! The background for this card is made using plumbers insulation tape. It's 4 inches wide, comes on a roll and is self adhesive! Way better than trying to glue baco foil to card!! I saw a lady use this on tv and had to give it a try for my son's birthday card! You can stick the tape on in random pieces, emboss it, then take a ballpoint pen and scratch small lines across the joins to look like staples, sorry this doesn't show up too well on my picture. I used a cog and ticket Sizzix die and some paper from my stash to decorate. The motorbike was cut using the Silhouette Cameo (love it). I really enjoyed putting this card together and look forward to giving it to my little boy (age 33) on Sunday!!!
I love to paint, but don't do it very often (not sure why)!
I stamped out the ivy and flowers separately, then painted them with Twinkling H2O's. These have a beautiful shimmer to them as they have mica mixed in - lovely!
This is for a friend's birthday, so I need to get on and finish the inside of the card so I can give it to her!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at these offerings, please leave me a comment if you like them.
Bye for now!.............
