It's already March and we have a new challenge at the Country View Challenges, called Number and/or Letters. So I decided to show you a birthday card that I made for my dad who became 70 years old on February 22.
I took a 300 gsm watercolour paper and with a brayer, I applied white (White Wash) and grey acrylic paints (Dove Grey, Grey Sky) to the surface.
When it was dry, I glued numbers onto the surface as a repeating pattern.
I also added some design tape pieces (Butterfly) and since I found the numbers and the design tape too harsh, I toned them back with a little grey paint. I also inked the edges of the card with Vintage Photo.
From different colour papers, I cut out the pieces of the robot and assembled them.
For the text, I used the Crazy Talk stamp set and stamped with Ranger Archival ink (Jet Black).
What I used:
Sizzix Thinlits die, Robotic by Tim Holtz
Sizzix Thinlits die, Gearheads by Tim Holtz
Sizzix Thinlits die, Alphanumeric (3/4") by Tim Holtz
Stampers Anonymous, Crazy Talk by Tim Holtz
Idea-Ology, Design Tape (Butterfly)
Ranger, Multi Medium (Matte)
Raner Distress ink (Vintage Photo)
Ranger Archival ink (Jet Black)
DecoArt Americana paints (White Wash, Dove Grey, Grey Sky)
If you have a project with numbers or letters (or both), please don't hesitate to join our March challenge where you can win a £20 voucher.
