Commissioned Birthday Card
I was asked to make a birthday card for a male who likes the great outdoors. Over at the Digi Doodle Stamp Challenge this week the topic is "use your favourite stamp" - well I used my favourite image last week so didn't want to use it two weeks in a row so I have gone for my second favourite, the little log cabin, out in the wilderness away from the mayhem of living in a town or city. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Ink Pads. The blue card and blue/green torn backing paper (from Crafty Ann's Digi Store) are all scraps leftover from other commissioned or challenge cards so they found a home on this card. I decided to do a wacky edging - I punched some random holes and then sewed through thin raffia to give it a rustic but not uniform edge. The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer and a little pottery vase with some male orientated coloured flowers. The customer was "over the moon" with the card!!!
This card also fits the following challenges:
