Today is a very special day in our house...our son's 18th birthday.
I know what you're thinking....how can a spring-chicken like myself, possibly have an 18 year old child (Cough!)
Moving on (Cough!)
Now the whole planet knows that finding the right card for a male is almost impossible. Cute cards just don't cut it anymore and he's not into the stereotypical male card activities of sailing or beer drinking, so for a while I just sat staring at my desk....I say 'a while'....I mean 'for EVER!'
With my new 'mixed-media' head on I eventually decided on this...
I started by adding a brick textured effect background to my piece of card with Light Paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. I used the tiny square border stamp from MFT's 'Whimsical Greetings' to frame the photo, attached it all to a piece of black card, then flicked black & white ink splatters everywhere...
...and I mean EVERYWHERE!!!
I need to practise my flicking technique...lol.
The handsome creature in the photo is my gorrrrrrrrjuss son Oliver...truly a Limited Edition.
If you do read this Oliver (which I know you won't coz it's uncool to follow your mum's blog)...then Happy Birthday kiddo.
Love you loads!!
