Male 18th birthday card

over 60 minutes Orange easy Card Making Birthday

I have been playing with my gelli plates and acrylic paints. My first attempts caused a lot of mess and not many useable backgrounds (more practice needed!). I did think that this one wasn't too bad though, it was made with copper and black acrylic paint, bubble wrap and stencils and then dry brushed over with white gesso and flicked with white paint. I then stamped on some bits in black and heat embossed and matted this onto black card, this was then layered onto a 6x6" kraft card. I attached a decoupaged topper with a camera on (recipient likes photography and music), and then stamped sentiment and 18 onto a piece of orange card, inked it up and matted it onto black card and attached. Finished it with a faux leather tag. x

Thanks Jacqui, I made a right mess though, black paint everywhere, probably stick to distress oxide inks and brushoes more. x
