I made this card for a friend who turned 50. I worked with him for a long time, and always joked with him that I raised him from a the time he was a pup! So this card came together appropriately! It is hard to see the details in this photo (he took the picture for me–I had forgotten to do it before I gave it to him–oops!), but there are a lot of layers and textures. I started out by applying Distress Oxide inks and water to the media board in a number of layers, drying after each application. Then I added transparent texture paste through the grid stencil and added more ink. I then stenciled the numbers (50) from the “Cargo” stencil. The dog stamp was designed by Brett Weldele, who is a local artist here in Salem. Thanks for visiting.
