Dino Birthday

I made this card for one of my sons friends.  Had to do a bit of research in the many dinosaur books we have here to find a good dinosaur to draw.  Sketched it onto card, inked in some colours then heat embossed with thick clear embossing powder before cutting it out.  Stamped the sentiments with a small set of alphabet stamps and stuck over some geometric shapes cut out of coloured paper.

Starry Birthday

I received a free star stamp with a magazine I bought recently and wanted to make a card with it.
The stars were inked with versamark then embossed with silver and sparkly black powder.  I inked in the background with some pale blues and greens, applying them with a sponge dauber.
The large letters were embossed in silver, then inked over with dark blue, then carefully cut out so that some of the blue background could still be seen.  The birthday part was handwritten.
Am entering this into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge: impress us

Birthday card

Have made this card for my Father-in-law's birthday later this month and am entering it into two challenges:
DYSU challenge 36 (Texture)
Anything Goes challenge 49 (Vintage / Shabby Chic).
The papers used were from my stash of magazine freebies, I cut out the shapes and distressed them.
The large letters are die cut using Tim Holtz vintage market alphabet and embossed with gold, the small sentiment is from a Woodware set.
The inspiration for this card came from the blog of a lady whose work I think is amazing - Jo Kill. (
