I had a card to make for a man whose birthday is Christmas Eve. I decided to use one of my new Sheena Douglas Swining Sixties stencils. I applied Mixtion liquid paste through the stencil with a sponge, and when dry, brush on some blue and green Indigoblu luscious pigment powders. I then stamped Happy Birthday using the new letter stamps from Barbara Gray (Clarity Stamps) and then outlined some of the shapes with a blue alchohol pen.
A bit of a departure from my usual style - but men's cards are so difficult! and I wanted to keep it fairly simple.
