This is a card that I actually made quite a few weeks ago even though the Birthday was not until this weekend.
It was a commission for someone I didn't think I would easily see for a bit so was also done rather speedily!
I was given a couple of subjects and chose the cricket option with this lovely Papermania nostalgia stamp designed by John Byars.
I stamped it in Memento rich cocoa which I also sponged round the edge of the cut out image. I stamped the image a second time and cut the cricketer & ball out and mounted on 3D pads for some more dimension. I then used some polychromos pencils in matching shades to define the stamp a little.
Finished off with some layering, card candi and peel off sentiment all mounted on an A5 kraft card.
(Only a couple of days until the heart project is completed!).
