I didn't get time to do a What's new Wednesday and then I was going to make it Thursday - but hey life got in the way for a little while :-)
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles, it's a really easy one - Birthday's!
It's someones birthday every day of the year, and I know you all have cards to make - so get making :-)
I decided to get ahead and make Andy's birthday card for May - at least I then know it's done. I used the pre-coloured images of Winston off one of the Design sheets.
Another Z fold card, seems to be a goodie to go to at them moment. So easy! Take a pre-folded card, this is 6.5" by 5" and fold the top half in half LOL!. That is it, then add your panels.
As you can see I layered up Winston in his fishing boat. Added a little bit of black cotton for the fishing line, and a little Glossy Accents to the fish bait.
I love inking the edges of the layers and the image layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, so much so that I have to go buy a re-inker for it :-)
For the inside I added a message panel and layered up the papers, and added some paper buttons too.
This would also make a good retirement card, I think. Long way off for Andy yet LOL!
I have been thoroughly enjoying the decoupage layers lately. Takes a little time but the finished result is so wonderful.
