Today I've decided to pull out a few other materials, namely this wonderful little coloured 'paper pocket' and a tag so that I could create a cute little variation yesterday's theme. It's all really quick funny, since I've never been concerned about birthdays or my age, but I know some people are and so the idea was born.
I had this newsprint on which I had cleaned the dictionary stamp I used in the blog hop post while I was doing the background Gelli print. I tore a couple of pieces from it to glue to the pocket and the tag. Then using Inktense pencils, a stencil, the little black insert from doggie poo bags, and some acrylic paint I added some additional colour and texture.
Notice the drippage...drippage makes me happy!
Since all the additions resulted in the backgrounds not being totally flat, I stamped the two bird stamps on to deli paper, tore the images out, and adhered them using matte medium.
Add some magazine cut outs for the text, some fun tassels to the tag using yarns or whatever you have on hand and you've got a cute little birthday 'card' for that special friend who's celebrating the --th anniversary of their 29th birthday!
The message says, "A little bird told me it was your birthday...-but don't worry...I put an end the THAT!"
Here are the two pieces separate:
