STB#2 - Masculine Birthday

It's the second week of the Seize the Birthday challenge. This week is to make a masculine birthday card using the same sketch as last week.

Here's my card:

I started off by stamping and coloring this Stamping Bella image with my prisma pencils.  Then I masked the image and stamped a Penny Black brick background over it and colored that with Distress Inks.  I added a little more red prisma pencil to the bricks then some white highlights.  I stamped a PTI birthday sentiment on the brick.  I thought it would of been a bit more bold - but oh well!

I used Tim Holtz and Cuttlebug embossing folders and then sanded them a bit.  Some twine and a button and this masculine card is done!

Here's the sketch if you want to play:



Thanks for your visit!
