Boys and there toys......

Happy Saturday everyone!!

I am going to try and make up for my absence last week with a couple of extra posts this weekend!!

First off I thought I'd share a couple of fella's Birthday cards and they are both based on good old trains and travel...

This is a collage card  made up using several Creative Expressions sets of stamps and the Splodge Heart from the heart corners was used to create the gentle distress ink blending for the background. I have recreated this card in various guises n colourways since - I just love collage.

Next there's this 70th birthday card .....

...this time with a truly vintage theme. The age on the rosette was created using peel offs....aged embossing powder was melted in several layers over them and then the peel offs were lifted away before it had completely cooled. Was rather pleased with the texture it achieved. I know they are a really "uncool" but think "outside the box"  used in different ways they really can add to a project.

Have a great weekend whatever you have planned.

Call back and say Hi soon

Crafty cheers for now
