Anders 50years

I don't to cards that often. So when I do, it feels much easier to start with a sketch, a lifeline to hold on to - kind of.

I was going to do a card to my brother who just turned 50. (!) And then I used a sketch that my DT friend Ulrika created for SweScrap.

I really liked the sketch, but I turned it up side down, and used a big 5 and 0 instead of a heart. So this is how it turned out....

 ....and this is how it looked at my first attempt... but it didn't feel like me. 

So I gave it a little Mixed Media twist. Much better! :)

I covered up the numbers with a baby wipe and misted the whole card with three different Dylusions mists, in the shade of green/teal.

Then I misted over three different masks, also from Dylusions in the same green/teal shade and also the white mist - White Linnen.

 Then the numbers didn't stand out as much, so I gave them a white outlining and some black scribble.

At first I also covered the numbers with crackle accents. In this close up you can see the crackles, and also that it is flowers in the numbers. Cute, right? :)

I wrote Happy Birthday with gesso, and did some scribble there as well. 

To finish it all up, I added little dots of stickles in some places. :)
