Good Morning Folks,

I must get my thinking cap on and design a card for a young friend who has a birthday in a couple of weeks time. He is a very clever young chap with a lively interest in many things - so what will I choose for my subject?  So far, I haven't come up with a satisfactory idea but when I do, I will post the card here for you to see - after his birthday of course!  It is only fair he should see it first!

In the interim here is a card I made for him previously.  As I said, he is a bright young thing, so the academic theme seemed appropriate.

The background has been stamped on brown card and heat embossed using clear powder.  The stamp I used for this is from Impression Obsession and is called Bookshelves - no surprise there then!  The main elements are from a Sheena Douglass stamp set from her Little Bit Magical range called Knowledge.  I have stamped onto Sheena White Stamping Card, blended a bit of distress ink around the edges and also across the card.  I have then splashed a few drops of water and blotted.  Images are coloured with a variety of watercolours and finally I have sprinkled on some Stampendous Frantage Aged Green embossing enamel and heated.

  1. A beautiful card Anne and I'm sure the young man really loved it. Great design work and I love the frantage. Barbxx
