Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone
Well, it has turned really cold here today.  I am bracing myself for some frosty mornings to come.  As long as we don't have any snow I can cope with it being a bit colder. 

Today I thought I would share a quick male card using distress ink and stencils.


I started off by taking a square of white card and blending over various shades of blue distress ink.  I then added some water splatters for a bit of interest.  I have had the clock stencil for ages and just used some dark blue distress ink through it.  I added a birthday sentiment and some candles which are from a stamp set that I have had for years.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all the lovely comments and the support that you give me.

Good one Mags! CAS and yet depth with the added water spots and the lighter clock face that recedes to the back. Simple silhouette images deliver your sentiment nicely. Definitely a masculine vibe! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
