... a birthday card, but not in my usual style ...
Since I bought some Tim Holtz stamps and new inks and ink applicator, I've been using them every chance I can get, so I decided there was no reason not to use them on a birthday card. This is nothing like my usual style of card, which is normally much cleaner and prettier, but I think this works. The sentiment inside will wish for a better year ahead than that that has been before.
So, on this I have used three stamps from my new Tim Holtz set and I've also used the ink applicator to ink the papers a little, making them not so "clean" and stark, giving the whole thing a sort of shabby chic effect.
I think I'm safe posting this on here, I'm pretty sure the recipient doesn't visit this blog, but if she does, I can assure her that the card looks better in the flesh than in the photo, so I hope she'll be pleased when it arrives later this week.
