I used two different stamp sets on this card; Bright Days Clear and Framed Fonts Clear. To get the wood grain effect, I used a technique called velveteen stamping. Using white pigment ink I stamped a wood grain pattern onto white card stock. I then used dye ink to stamp the rays and the wood grain pattern came through the ink. Isn't this a cool effect? Since I like birthday cards that are bright and sparkly, I added some diamond Stickles. My husband recently watch the Beatles 50th anniversary show on CBS and in addition to the music, he loved the art work of Peter Max. I think this card has a little of that Peter Max vibe to it so this will be perfect for his birthday.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
