Turning Ten ...

Supplies: Sailing boat stamp - Lili of the Valley, blue cardstock - 
Canson, Outline Alphabet stamp set - PTI, glossy accents, 
pop dots, tombow roller adhesive, copics, paintbrush, 
Viridian - Aquamarine - French Ultramarine Archival inks - 
Ranger, faded jeans distress ink - Ranger, Pearl Acrylic 
Paint - docrafts, detail scissors and guillotine - purple cows.

Made this splattered card for my son's 10th Birthday today.  

I decided to create a splatter effect background with various shades of ink that I mixed with some water and got splatting with a paintbrush!  So much fun!  I then added the image which I coloured with copics on top with pop dots for some dimension.

The white acrylic paint is a pearl medium so there is a little bit of shine and I added glossy accents to the hull of the boat.

over on Moxie Fab World.

Here's the birthday boy! (obviously when he was a lot younger!)
Where did the time go?  
Think I may have shared this cutie photo before - just adore the colours in it!  and those chocolate brown button eyes!

Taking time this morning to arrange Birthday celebrations 
- will be back to share a card later!  

Thanks for stopping by.

Congratulations to your boy! My girl turned 10 in february, it is amazing to see how quickly she's changing.
Gorgeous card, love the paint splatters, there's one paint that's shiny, isn't there?

Deirdre said...

Thanks Elisa - don't know where the time went! The docrafts acrylic paint is pearl - hence the shine (I watered it down so it was easier to splatter!)
