You're 4!

Hello Everybody!

I got my gelli plate out tonight and had a wonderful time making backgrounds!  For this card I used a blue paint and a texture thing from Martha Stewart.  We were at Home Depot last night in the paint section and Martha Stewart had a paint combing set for $6!  There were 3 different sized combs and one of the combs had two sides so that's like 4!  I used the biggest one on this monoprint.

Then for the square I used bubble wrap and edged scissors to cut out the square.  I put Tim Holtz Silver distress paint around the edges.  The circle is from a different monoprint.  The tissue tapes and letters are also Tim Holtz.

I am entering the following challenges:  Unscripted Sketches #206 4th Blogiversary

And Simon Says Stamp and Show: Make your own background.  They always give away a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp- so awesome! :)

Thank you for stopping by!  I am giving this card to a little guy that turns 4 tomorrow!  He likes art so I hope he likes this card!

Until next time my friends-Let's have some cake and ice cream! There are celebrations everywhere! :)
