Collecting Wrinkles

Welcome,

This week at CCC Digi Creations Challenge we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and the winner will receive 7 Bugaboo images of their choice. 
The theme of this weeks challenge is 
'For the Man in your Life'.


My card uses the bugaboo image Gus - Birthday.  As soon as I saw the sentiment, I knew which embossing folder I wanted to use with it.  After embossing the background, I rubbed Inka Gold silver rub on it.


I coloured the image with water colours, then added Glossy Accents to the balloons and Gus's glasses for some dimension and shine.


The final touch were some embossed brads - they were originally a dull, powder finish, but I read how to emboss them this weekend, and this is the result.


I mounted both the image and sentiment on black card before placing them on the card.


I am linking this to:


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed

This character in Bugaboo's designs always makes me smile. Love the way you've colored him, and made those eyes pop. Great textured & colored background, but that sentiment just sent me over the wall. So funny and so perfect on this terrific card. Sure to ease a birthday for the recipient and bring a big grin. TFS & Hugs
