Another masculine birthday card
This is a birthday card for a budding construction worker. Actually, my husband has been helping his son do some home renovations on his house and I think they've both enjoyed the carpenter/apprentice times spent these past several weekends.
The stamp is one of STAMPING BELLA's stamping Fella stamps. I stamped on watercolor paper and used my Prismacolor watercolor pencils for color along with gel pens for the metal tools. I've been using my watercolor pencils a lot more frequently. The Prismacolor watercolor pencils provide vibrant colors just as the more frequently used (by me) colored pencils.
The designer background paper is by K & Company. I bought this sheet years ago knowing that someday I'd need it.
Now for the inside sentiment. I didn't have a stamp with a tool or construction theme so my husband came up with the inside birthday wishes. It is computer generated. Get ready to groan...here is what it says:
Ha haa! It is a groaner but it is fun. Did you catch all of the tool words?
I received some beautiful new stamps from very dear friends for my birthday a few weeks ago and I think I shall ink them up today.
