There is no better way to spend New Year's Eve than getting inky with my MISTI.
Since the theme at the Impression Obsession Challenge is Anything Goes, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to create a masculine birthday card I need to get in the mail.
I started by stamping Impression Obsession Gentlemen Silhouette in Gina K. design Kraft ink on Watercolor Paper and clear embossed.
Next I created layered stamping with three colors of Distress Ink (Mustard Seed, Antique Linen & Crushed Olive) and Seth Apter's Solar System Stamps.
Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card Birthday Words Background was inked with Brushed Corduroy, Crushed Olive & Gathered Twigs Distress Inks and stamped on top. I wiped some of the text away from my embossed Gentlemen, but left some of it intact.
I trimmed down my image to around 5" square and mounted on a bronze metallic cardstock base. I finished with a row of Eyelet Outlet Champagne Gems along the edge.
I believe they look quite dapper ... I imagine them singing a rousing happy birthday to the recipient.
I'm also linking-up at Creatalicious Challenge where the theme is also Anything Goes.
