Happy birthday challenge card

Hi there,

I think my inspiration is coming back slowly. Fortunately, because I didn't like that it was gone ... With the next card I'm playing along with the three following challenges:


Use it tuesday:
Cooking up fun, and I used 2 stamps (the cook, and the sentiment) I have laying around for ever. These were the first stamps I bought since I started cardmaking.

Inspirational Card sketches:

For the first time I have really made an attempt to color a stamp in with distress ink and luckily I had bought paper for that yesterday. I'm pleased with the result. I don't know much about light and shadows and all, but I definitely want to learn more about it. Maybe by a workshop or something.
The result:

The materials:
  • Distress Ink: spiced marmalade, tumbled glass, rusty hinge, dried marigold, Wallnut stain, frayed burlap, Mustard Seed, by barn, tattered rose
  • Embossing folder
  • sandpaper
  • Water brush
  • flowers
  • Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by!!

Ooo, wat een leuke kaart is het geworden. Nou ik vind hem erg mooi ingekleurd hoor, met lichte plekken op z'n broek en ook op het sjaaltje zie je duidelijk verloop. Heel goed gedaan!
