Birthday cards

Hey Crafters,

Did you have a good week-end? We sure did, though the weather wasn’t too great. We spent the day in a theme park and I am still not sure if the kids had more fun or their Dad. He's very much into coasters lately. Anyway, it was great, only today we’re all so tired. None of us got up well.

So I’ll just quickly show you two cards I created on Saturday. They both use mostly the same colors and techniques.

I wanted to create a very simple card, with partial stenciling and a rather male color palette. So I used my wavy stencil and some blue and teal inks. I also picked a grey, but unfortunately I grabbed the wrong sponge, so my grey has a rather brownish tinge. Let’s call it a warm grey.

For the second card I used a butterfly stencil to mask of most of the card and leave only the butterfly. I discarded the grey and used antique linen instead and added a little black soot on the top to darken the blue.

Both sentiments are from the same set and so are the stars and swirls.

I also created matching envelopes with the same stencils and colors.

Have a great day
