Dave's Birthday

This is the card and "D" I made Dave for his 50th birthday.
For the card I used a Tim Holtz mask and a mix of Bundled Sage and Stormy Sky Distress Inks . I then stamped using the same colours with various PaperArtsy and Art Journey stamps.
The 50 is made from Grungepaper (I printed a 50 on paper, then used it as a template), which is painted with Kaiser Colour Paints - Olive.
The D is a Paper Mache letter from The Craft Barn. I primed it with Gesso, then painted it with Dabbers - Butterscotch and Stream.
The stamps are again a mix of PaperArtsy and Art Journey. The "Dave" is chipboard letters, painted with Stream. The quotes down the side of the "D" are from a quote sheet of stamps (I cant remember the shop name - sorry)


  1. What a stunning and special card Trish. You are very clever ! Sorry we did not know that Dave was celebrating a BIG birthday, please give him our very best wishes Much Love Sheila

  2. Oh wow!

    Lucky Dave!

  3. These are both gorgeous, I'm sure Dave loved them! I like the colours on both and the designs, especially the clogs and time theme. Love the quotes too, they came from :)
