Happy Birthday to Tony
Last Friday was Tony's birthday. Tony is my son and he just turned 27. For his present, I contributed towards a 30gb Zune player. It plays tv shows, music and a bunch of other nonsense. Oh ok it's not nonsense. That generation sure loves their gadgets, don't they? This is his birthday card this year. I started out with plain white cardstock and used my Adirondack color wash spray inks to make the background. I love Fall colors, don't you? I used some of the background paper to stamp the Paula Best stamps on and emboss in Pirate Gold EP. I matted them on black. Then I took another scrap of the background paper, and covered it with the olive green radiant rain H2o's. It's very sparkly. I adhered the black paper with the stamped images to the green background and then ran my gold pen around the edges. I added some adhesive mesh to the background and some gold peel-off's to the corners. I stamped the justjohanna sentiment to black cardstock and then edged it in gold. I used some gold 22 gauge wire and bent it into swirlys on the ends and attached it to the card and then attached the sentiment on top. I really liked making this background paper. It's not as fancy as Julie's but I like it just the same.
