It's your birthday!

I seem to be in birthday card mode - only creating birthday cards. But I guess that's normal for this time of the year. My immediate and extended family seem to mostly have birthdays in June, July and August. Can you believe it is August already?!!

My card today also goes along with DRS Designs' recent challenge: Naked Stamping - no coloring. I created the background paper and then stamped the silhouette image in black over top.

I created the background paper by dropping some alcohol ink into water and then laying the CS on top. You end up with some usual designs. I really like the look. I stamped the cowboy image with Versafine Black Onyx ink using the Misti to get a nice crisp image. This is layered onto black CS and then attached to yellow CS. The greeting was also stamped in black on the same background paper, layered on black CS. Before attaching it to the yellow panel I added some black brads.

This is an easel card and the rest of the greeting is stamped on the inside on the same homemade background paper, layered on black CS and attached to the yellow CS with foam dots for some dimension to hold the card open. Here's a look a the inside.

If you have time, we'd love to have you join in this week's Naked Stamping. You can see details here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
