I have quite few birthdays to make cards for and I am trying to get ahead of myself!
I must admit this is one of my easiest cards to make and I have made one or two using this method
I used Distress markers to make mine but any water soluble markers will do.
Scribble colours randomly over an acrylic block for this card - just using shades of green
Next spritz the inks and then use the block as a stamp. If you don't get the result you hoped for have quick mop over the card and turn the block around and 'stamp' again.
Once dry I stamped my tree image- this one didn't stamp particularly well (I used Water colour paper) so I had to fill in some areas with a black Pitt pen
All that was left to do then was mount it and stamp a sentiment.
This is the card I made for my son for his birthday on Sunday
As you can see I chose rainbow colours for the background and the spattery dots.
I still have a few Paris photos to show you.
After meeting up with Patty and Jim we met up with my Sister in law and Brother in law for lunch.
It was the worst meal we had eaten in Paris this visit and no photos - on reflection - this could have been the meal that made me poorly - not inedible - just not as delicious as the others we had!!
Afterwards we walked to Les Invalides where Napoleon's tomb is resting
The inside is beautiful although I became confused about which was THE Napoleons tomb.There are also tombs of some of the great soldiers of France.
This is Napoleon Bonaparte's tombThis is the tomb of his brother Joseph Napoleon
Oh! and I am here to share my drink with Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T stands for Tuesday too.
Elizabeth is always happy to see drink related posts on Tuesdays - although they may leave you feeling hungry!
Just a little reminder, you have two weeks to enter the TIOT challenge so I do hope you will join in.
Thanks for looking, Chris
