One for the Boys!

Teenage Birthday

Earlier this year I was commissioned to do about 20
teenage birthday cards for a teacher at school.
This is another one in that series that I thought I would share with you.

Really a very simple, and quick, card.


I've inked onto shiney paper using different brown distress inks.
Then with a little bleach I've taken some of the colour off so that the 
main image pops a little.
I used shiny cardstock because it bleaches better I think...
And then splattered a little black and yellow acrylic paint
just to finish off the background.

Enjoy!


I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

A great card for the lads Dot, really effective bleaching and a fab idea to add just a little round the sentiment, it really draw it out.
