new masculine stamps

In the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue there are some 'al la carte' stamps (sold as a single stamp) that are great for making those always hard masculine cards. This one is the motorbike stamp. The guitar, diamond background and greeting are from the Grunge set from the last mini which means unfortunately it's not available to purchase. You have to ensure you order from the current catalogues so you don't MISS OUT! lol I am hoping in makes it back into the next big Ideas Book & Catalogue cause it is a great set.
Anyway back to the card - to create the background I made a stencil out of thick card and then sponged the red and blue to create the Union Jack. I added the detail of the small bit of crimping just cause I could! lol
The 'Happy Birthday' is stamped on to thick vellum and I added some brads. This card was made for my neighbours birthday -he is English and loves guitars and motorbikes so it went down well!.
Just a reminder that tomorrow (the 6th April) is the 1st Wednesday in the month so it's class time. We are doing a very cool technique - cracked glass. If you need to know more email me julia.leece@slingshot.co.nz

thanks for visiting
