It's time to celebrate

Hi everyone. A new day and a new challenge at The Male Room Challenge. For my DT-project this time I made a cute card for a birthday boy I know.

I started making my background panel using a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. I colored it using distress brushes with the distress oxcide colors stormy sky and tumbled glass. I also colored a piece of cardstock using the distress oxcide colors twisted citron, mowed lawn and lucky clover. I then cut them using the same rectangle die as the background panel and then a grass die from Lawn Fawn. I glued these pieces together to make the scene for the images.

I popped the grass at the top up on foam squares to create dimension. I splashed a couple of drops of water on the grass and sky to create even more dimension in the image.

For the sign I cut a piece of white cardstock using a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. I then cut the edges to make it look like boards. I drew lines and nails and then colored the sign using Zig clean color real brush markers. I also cut a strip of paper to make the post for the sign.

The bird image is from Heffy Doodle's stamp set "Wing man". The paint bucket is the honey bucket from the "Bee happy" stamp set by Hello Bluebird. The paint brush is an altered shovel from the stamp set "You & me by the sea" by Hero Arts. The banners are from the Concord & 9th "Birthday stacks" stamp set. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I did all of the coloring on the images using my Zigs. I only colored part of the sentiment to make it look like the birs is in the middle of making the sign.

I assembled the images popping all the images up on foam squares before I mounted the panel on a white card base using even more foam tape.

For finishing touches I glued on a couple of red enamel dots and covered the "paint" on the sign and in the bucket with glossy accents to add some shine to the card.

I hope you will join us in the DIY challenge the next couple of weeks.
