Birthday card and Calendar



I've made this card for Carol one of my forum friends. Using A stardream card base then added a layered Hero arts Floral grid background stamp plus a bit of bling. I made the flower from die-cut grungepaper painted with Viva precious metals then splashed a bit of starburst inkstains on it for toning.



The Calendar was started on a 8"x 8" chipboard blank. Viva Terra was used to create the texture along with a variety of rubber stamps, Acrylic paints and glimmer mist. Leander and Lin have some cool tutorials on their blogs. It's one of the techniques we learnt at the last Artsy craft weekend. Latest details here.
