Bentley Male Birthday
I started by colouring the image with Promarkers and Sakura pens, then making clouds with a scalloped mask and ink on a paintbrush. I then used Tim Holtz distress ink at the base of the image rubbed on by foam.
I then mounted this onto dark brown card and distressed this with my scissors. I wanted to give it quite a mascaline, grungy feel so I distressed all the papers with this method.
I chose mascaline design papers from My Minds Eye and used a Kraft card blank as my base, and started by making three panels attached as my backing. I made a torn textured card border with a strip of MME paper running through the middle and lastly added a 'Happy Birthday' self adhesive vellum greeting on a little panel of matching paper for the corner of the image.
I hope you like it, and I really hope David likes it!
