Getting Old . . . and Collecting Wrinkles

It's time for a new challenge with us on the

As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.
Three to five random winners are drawn and
each get to choose 3 set of papers from the Paper Pick Tab


Today I have used the Blow Brown digital paper by Lozzy at A Bit More Time To Craft.  It's the 9th collection when scrolling down through the PAPER PICKS and has ten fabulous patterned papers.  I have combined this digital paper with the Gus Birthday - Collect Wrinkles digital stamp from Bugaboo StampsThe detail and texture of this patterned paper is perfect for this wrinkly old birthday boy and fun sentiment.
What do you think?

My card started in Silhouette Studio.  I opened the Blow Brown digital paper, digital image and sentiment and sized them to fit on a 6" square card.  I "sliced" the sentiment in half, so that I could stagger it on the sides of the image panel.   I printed the image and sentiment panels on X-Press It blending card, heat set, coloured with Copic markers and trimmed to size.  I printed the Blow Brown patterned paper on smooth white cardstock and it trimmed down to 5 3/4".  I cut a 6" x 12" cardstock strip, scored at 6" and created the 6" card base.  I cut two 1" strips from the same cardstock for the sentiments.  The image panel was adhered to the same cardstock then trimmed to a 1/8" mat using a Perfect Layers ruler.  I used liquid adhesive to secure all the layers on the card base.  I finished off the card by colouring some faceted clear rhinestones with Copic markers to match the image panel, adding several layers to build up the colour, with darker shades around the edges.

Here are some more pics of my wrinkled cutie . . .

No, you're not seeing things, I used this digital stamp and design a few weeks ago (HERE), as soon as the card was made, I thought of this design from the Blow Brown digital paper set and HAD to make another card ... you can never have too many masculine cards in your stash ... I might have to make another card using brown cardstock to match this digital paper now!


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
