I made a quick card last night as I remembered it is my nephews 21st tomorrow. :-0 Well I knew it was his birthday but forgot I had to make a card. Guess the card won't arrive quite on time. Oops! I decided to try and incorporate Unstampabelles latest challenge of 'Dare to get Dirty' and attempted the added twist of photographing the journey. So I started with a piece of Stamping Up Very Vanilla, my glitter tray, one bouncy ball and my two refill inks for my Copics.
I attached the card stock with a little double sided tape so it wouldn't move about then dotted the inks around the edge of the card.
Then the fun began. I rolled the ball through the inks and over the card to create the background.
Next I used my gold spritz spray on the base card of SU Soft Suede…this is definitely messy.
Decided that I would spray the ball rolled background too.
I found some keys that I have had in my stash for many a year. Thought this worked well as you are meant to get a key when you turn 21. The sentiment I printed on my computer and then pin pricked a line underneath.
This morning I decided to write in the words alongside each key - Key to Life, Key to Love, Key to Happiness
Then wrote this on the inside of the card. After all Google is the answer to everything isn't it.
I have added this card to the Make It Monday challenge also.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day, thanks for stopping on by. Before I go I will share some photos.
Last week we had an amazing time on the Gold Coast (QLD) catching up with our son and my MIL. This was the view from our balcony.
Night time view. That is the Q1 you can see….tallest building in Australia.
Our son either camera shy or fixing his mop of hair. :-)
We saw awesome sandcastles….13 in all I think.
Spent an afternoon at Palm Beach while our son completed filming a short film.
Took MIL on a river ferry to see the views…..it had to be the hottest day we were there. Was just like being in Cairns. :-)
One of the different sights we saw while driving around….Mario Bros on scooters.
Hope to catch up with you all again soon.
