Its an age thing.



'Birthdays with a Twist', is the new theme at Try it on Tuesdays............
......and  the TWIST is to use a mask or stencil.
You can see the stencil  [Memory Box] I used on the left. I used grunge paste and when it was dry painted it with linen acrylic paint to give the effect of  sun rays.

This card is layered up on  a Kraft card base.  The main layer was coloured with, Antique linen, Mustard seed and Spiced marmalade distress inks. The stamps are from  Indigo Blu stamped with Potting soil and Fern Green Arcival ink. I used water colour for the flowers and butterfly. I quite likes these words, and had a good chuckle as I edges them with  gold Frantage embossing powder.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave me.
