Age is just a number – The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

It’s the last day of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Due to health problems this time not many colouring done. But every day I have taken me-time to read on the blog and look at all the beautiful things that were made. Kathy (The Daily Marker) it was great again, thank you so much and I hope next year an other Coloring Challenge.

This week I made a shaker card, it’s a birthday card for a friend. It’s often difficult to make up a male card  especially if you made every year for the same person a birthday card. But a shaker card I never made for him, so this time I did.
I used a stencil and three colours of Distress Oxide to blend numbers on the front panel.
Then I die cutted a heart out of that panel and with the same die and a smaller piece out if the die cutting nest, I cutted  a frame.
Out of three different colours of cardstock I die cutted numbers for the shaker part.
I glued the heart on to my base card and put  2 mm foam tape around it, that is my shaker part. Then I put the numbers in that heart.
Behind the heart opening that I die cut in the front panel I glued some transparent sheet, then I glued this part on top of my base card in such a manner that the transparent closes the shaker part.
To finish the shaker part I adhered the frame on top of the transparent.
The sentiment, Age is just a number in Dutch, I made on my computer, I cut it to the right size and finished my card by putting the sentiment with some foam tape on the card.

Niets leuker dan spelen met inkt, ditmaal een vintage verjaardagkaart.
Ik heb op een vierkante oplegkaart de achtergrond geblend met Distress Oxides, hierna een stencil licht met water besproeid en deze op mijn achtergrond gelegd. Even het water in laten werken en daarna het stencil verwijderd. Wat achtergebleven druppels drooggedept .
Op de achtergrond gespetterd met Distress Stain Antique Bronze en Distress ink Vintage Photo.
De randen bewerkt met D.I Vintage Photo en daarna met Walnut Stain.
In de linkerbovenhoek een vliegtuigje gestempeld met Stazon Timber Brown.
Hierna  Oxides en Stain op mijn craftmat gedrukt en besproeid met water. Een rest stukje karton hier doorheen gehaald, droog geblazen met de heat tool en net zo lang herhaald tot ik tevreden was. Na drogen de tandwielenrand en losse tandwielen hieruit uitgestanst. Deze bewerkt met VersaMark en Distress Embossingpoeder Vintage Photo voor een roestige/vintage look.
Op een stukje bruin karton, dezelfde kleur als waar de kaart van gemaakt is, de tekst met VersaMark gestempeld en met Embossingpoeder  en mijn heattool ge-embost.
Tag uitgestanst en bewerkt met Distress Oxides.
De achtergrond op een kaart geplakt en de kaart afgemaakt door de tandwielen en tag met 3D kit verhoogt op de achtergrond te plakken.

Nothing more enjoyable than playing with inks, this time a vintage birthday card.
On a square piece of cardstock I blended the background panel with Distress Oxides, then I sprayed a stencil light with water and placed this on my background. Left that for a few moment and lift it gently up. Any residue of water I dabbed away.
Splattered with Distress Stain Antique Bronze and Distress ink Vintage Photo.
Edited the edges with D.I Vintage Photo and then with Walnut Stain.
In the left corner I stamped a little airplane with Stazon Timber Brown.
I put some Oxides and Stain on my craft mat and sprayed some water on top. I pullet a left over piece of cardstock through the ink, dried it with my heat tool and repeated it again until I was satisfied with the result.
When this piece of cardstock was completely dry I die cut my gear border and loose cogs out of this. After die cutting I used some VeraMark and Distress Embossing powder Vintage Photo to give it a rusted/vintage look.
On a piece of brown cardstock I stamped with VersaMark my sentiment and heat embossed it with Sea Foam embossing powder. Die cut this piece and edited it with Distress Oxides.
I put the background with double sided adhesive to my card base.
I finished the card by using 3D Kit for the gear border, tag and cogs to glue them with dimension on my background.
