Today is Steven's birthday or Lad as he's known in this house. I've known Lad since working with his Mum about 12 years ago.
When I saw the challenge over at Pollycraft is to use an old or neglected stamp. Well one of the first digi stamps I ever found was a freebie from Pollycraft called Beer Monster.
Anywho Mike went to pick Lad up from Liverpool airport as he was flying in to surprise his parents and so I took this quiet time to make a birthday card for Lad.
I have used the sketch for this weeks challenge over at Mojo Monday.
Here's the sketch:
Here's Lads card :
The beer monster had to be coloured in Manchester City colours of sky blue, so I coloured him with my copics, then used sakura stardust pens to do the wording on his t-shirt and his horns. I layered up another pint mug and covered it in glossy accents to make it look like a shiny glass. I used sakura glaze pens on his eyes and his blue spots.
The sentiment was stamped in blue and then the word party was gone over in the blue sakura stardust pen.
The silver and blue surrounding the sentiment is done with the accent essentials cricut cartridge.
The backing paper is from my stash and doesn't have a name on it. The blue colour core paper was embossed with my crafts too 5" swiss dots folder then distressed to reveal the lighter blue.
The scalloped border at the bottom is made from punching circles or the colour core and then cutting them in half.
The ribbon is from my stash and as usual I have used card candy to finish off the card.
This card is also being entered into the Bugaboo Challenge which is anything goes.
Thanks for dropping on by,
