21 today

Paula here with a 21st birthday card design.....

Products used:
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Remnant Rubs: Numbers
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Remnant Rubs: Words
Tim Holtz Stamps: Mixed Media
Tim Holtz Stamps: Steampunk
Tim Holtz Stamps: Psychedelic Grunge
Donna Downey Stencil: Perforated Dot Flower
Dylusions Stencil: 5x8 Number Jumble
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads: Festive Berries; Worn Lipstick; Black Soot
Archival Ink Pad: Jet Black

Right, the basic gist of this is......
  • Card Size is 99mm x 210mm
  • I took a ProMarker pen and scribbled down a base layer of colour.
  • Used the Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick Distress inks through the Donna Downey Stencil.
  • Used Black Soot Distress Ink through the Dylusions stencil.
  • Stamped the circles and star shape from the Psychedelic Grunge set using Archival ink.
  • Used Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs.
  • Stamped the hand and reverse stamped it (I used an old brayer to reverse the image) Cut the hands out.
  • Typed out Happy Birthday using a Dymo.
  • Stamped the star within circle image from the Psychedelic Grunge in Festive Berries.
  • Added some white rub ons from my own stash, as well as adding the word twenty and the number one.

Love the shape of this card, perfect layering of all the different elements with just the right amount of "pop" to make it stand out from the crowd!
