His & Her Day 1 (His version)

I am happy with the way this card came out. I will make more for all the 'boy' birthdays I have coming up. I embossed the Hero Art Bkg in clear EP on watercolor paper.  I used Tim Holtz distress pads (Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint) to create the watercolor background. I used the Salty Ocean pad direct to paper to make the banner element. Finally the star is covered with enamel accents and I added a nail head embellishment.

His & Her Day 1

 
 I am taking the His & Her online class and as always it has been fabulous! I have taken a lot of online classes and Kristina and Jennifer still show me new things. Day 1 Kristina used Tim Holtz distress markers- confession, I have the entire set and I think I have used them once- so bad! My favorite thing Kristina taught me was the use of the Tumbled glass distress marker around the edge of the image. I LOVE IT! The thing I learned on my own, there is a major difference in watercolor paper. Buy the good stuff from the art department. It holds up better, blends way easier, warps less. I used this

Supplies: Sweet & Sassy Poppy Bkg, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Ali Edwards-Incredible, Stazon Black, Willow Copic to color the rhinestones, vellum, SU Cajun Craze CS.
