Quick In-Law Birthday Card


Even though I have lost my mojo lately, I have had fun making these cards in a rush.... story of my life really !
 Well not only did I make the last two cards on sunday morning in a rush....... I had to make another card for my Mother-in-laws birthday. So I made this one on Tuesday morning, two hours before delivering it.

I used this lovely Basic Grey Paper as a base then stamped the boy (Whiff Of Joy ) and masked him up. I then stamped the watering  ( Magnolia) can over the top. I coloured the images with my Promarkers keeping the colours simple to match the patterned paper... then used a blue wax pencil to shade around the outside and Odourless Spirit to blend. I think it gives a warmer feel and no need for a background. 
The sentiment is a digi from Sentiments 4 You distressed with Tim Holtz - Stormy Sky ink. I found some lovely buttons in my stash... so I threaded with string and added to the card. The image is stamped on Spellbindes Labels 10 and cutting out without cutting his head off.
Mum in law loved it and I love her.
