Birthday Wishes

Sketch N Stash.

 Today the challenge over at sketch n stash is a Sketch challenge designed by Angie.


There are many birthday's today to celebrate.  I wish Ray Williams (an ex boyfriend) who is 42,
Chris Evans who is 45, My brother Mark Loring - who is 39, My nephew who is 14 and my Son's ex-girlfriend Lauren who is 17 today Many Happy Returns of the day to you all. I hope your day is memorable and filled with lots of love,laughter and fun.

I would like to share a card I made for the above challenge with you today.
The papers are from My Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress collection.
The image is from Paper shelter digital images

Both have been in my stash for a while but I have not got around to using them.

Here is the card. It has the words Ray Punk written on the front. Ray was a punk in his youth and the image of the cockatoo made me  think of him.. I thought it was very apt.
It was a colour image that I re coloured using my Copic markers. I then added a glaze over the image.
 I distressed the paper. using my distressing tool from the Tim Holtz's range of products.

He was very pleased with the card.

Thanks for viewing this post.
hugs Julie.

Update - as usual I didn't manage to get it in the challenge on time. Maybe next time?
