Birthday Card







This is a birthday card that I've created using lots of doodling and distressing.

Here are the steps to it.

1) The strip of paper on the left is created using the "water distressing" technique. I've first inked the paper using various colours of distress ink (ie. shabby shutters, peeled paint, frayed burlap, weathered wood, pine needles) and some sponges. Then I've sprinkled some water on it to create the water distressed look. To add more details to it, I've stamped on it and later masked some simple geometric patterns on it using distress ink.

2) I've used "Freshen up your Flowers" technique on the flower in the center.

3) All the flowers on the right border had been hand doodled and I've added some sequins and glitters for some bling.

Sources: Card stock: ProvoCraft, Pattern Paper: Paper Pizazz, Ink: Tim Holtz's Distress Ink, Staz On, Stamps: Autumn Leaves, Hampton Arts, Inkadinkado, Others: Zig pens, uni-ball signo gel pen, sequins, glitters (Stickles).
