happy birthday 29

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, December 9, 2015 @ 8:45 AM | , , , ,

Hi! Today we're celebrating my sweet husband Scott's birthday :) I struggle creating masculine projects especially cards but I gave it my best!
I opted for a mixed media style birthday card because he loves the artsy cards that I create. The more layers and products used, the more he likes them so it's a win / win for both of us:
I combined fun papers from the Prima Archivist collection along with a variety of Distress Inks and various embellishments including a grungeboard die cut clock which I altered with lots of inks and Distress embossing powder:

 I joined along with the following challenges; for sketch inspiration: retro sketches:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day/evening!
Be Sweet ;)

This is super, Mona! So many people use this brick stencil where it doesn't go, but this is the right place!!! It is just perfect in these colors with this clock, just perfect! Lovely MM card!

Julia Aston said...

Wonderful texture with the bricks and layered gears and blooms Mona - I'm sure Scott will love this from you (can I just say, with tongue in cheek, that you should try to leave the flowers off of a masculine card!! LOL!!!)just though on some more metal pieces!!! thanks so much for joining us in the Mixed Media Card challenge - Celebration! Julia xx

Congrats to Scott. Hope you had a lovely day and celecrated it in a great way.
I'm sure your card was appreciated. It's stunning. I love the rusty look on the clock and the vintage grungy look on the flowers. You succeeded in making a masculine card. The mix of the brickwall, the rusty clock and the grungy flowers look just perfect to me. I'm crazy about the texture you acieved on the brickwall.,
Thank you for sharing your lovely art.
Hugs from Monica.... Spain.

Happy, happy birthday to Scott!! I hope he had a wonderful day!! This is stunning, Mona!! I love the texture and the weathered clock!! It looks amazing!! Perfect masculine card!! Also, for some reason, I don't think my comments are showing up on the Prima blog. I tried to leave one on your last post featuring your gorgeous house but I don't think it ever showed up. Not sure why. I'll try again on your next project to see if it will take it then. I hope you have a wonderful day and again happy birthday to your hubby :)
