Birthday Card 1

Card made for one of the men at the Bowls Club who celebrated his birthday yesterday. I cannot get by the struggle to find themes for men's cards!

I printed the tiger image onto inkjet watercolour paper. This is the first time I've used this paper which is quite substantial and gives a lovely textured finish just like a watercolour painting. I sponged distress inks Dried marigold and Spiced Marmalade across the paper, then matted it onto black card.

The background paper is from DCWV Neutrals stack matted onto black card and the black fancy border was sent to me by Maureen who as you can see has recently acquired a Martha Stewart punch set (amongst other things!). I added a couple of sparkly squares to the back border.

This is my second submission to Pollycrafts 'Distressing' challenge.
