Saturdays are my day for showing an oldie ias inspired by Erika at Snappycrafts She invites topost an old project that has been posted before or needs it's day on a blog. I enjoy looking back at some of my old work and think - REALLY! or I have a little smile to myself and think I like this technique I must do it again, as in this case. I created the background using masking tape - faux leather. Do you know, I can't remember what I did. I think it starts with torn strips of masking tape onto paper. The trick being not to have a straight edge of the tape on show and to overlap them randomly. Swipe the finished piece with Distress ink - I used Vintage Photo - I remember that much as I don't own many pads! I then heat embossed it with clear CS embossing powder.
I made the card for a work colleague who is an avid cyclist. I cannot remember where the image is from or the "Happy Birthday" die. Why not join in and post/link your oldie
It's my birthday today. We are going out for lunch which will be lovely and means I get another cuddle with Oscar. I love and appreciate the presents I receive. But have got to say, he's the best present ever. Enjoy your week end - do you like Halloween?
