Hi there! I really don't seem to be having a lot of creative time lately, just making the cards that I need to at the moment. This card is for my nephew's 18th birthday in a few days time.


I tried out a resist technique on glossy cardstock for my background. The stamp is a large birthday text by Hero Arts and I used a few different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The greeting is from a Stamp-It set and the martini glass is from a Fiskars clear stamp set. The Nestabilities die cut piece behind the numbers is made with some more Distress Inks and misted with Bronze Glimmer Mist. I painted some plain chipboard numbers with black acrylic paint, then gave them a thick coast of Dimensional Magic. Added a little bling with some Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today! It's very cold and wintry here today, I'll be glad when Spring arrives!
