Moving Along With The Times... Age Related Sentiment..


Time for another Moving Along With The Times challenge.

This time Jenny is our hostess and her theme is 'Age Related Sentiment'

I wanted to make a 40th birthday card for a friend and I had the background to my card sitting on my desk and it sparked an idea.

I added some dots and glitter paste to the background. Because the background is quite dark, I used bright distress inks to create the little die-cut ink resist panel that the numbers are on. I love this technique and it looks stunning and has added a pop of colour to the card.

I used a fave Clearly Besotted sentiment and punched it using a Stampin Up label punch.

The whole thing is a bit artsy fartsy and I love it, the background was so easy to create and it's only two different ink colours, but looks like more than that.

Your turn to show us your creations, but first go over to MAWTT and see the things my teammates have made.

Challenge ends on June.8
