I had planned to say this Stampin' Up! French Foliage male birthday card was inspired by Autumn, but we're just 2 days away from winter here in the Melbourne! We have had some cold days and pouring rain at school pick up time. Why is the rain always heaviest at pick up time?
This was a card I made recently as an extra sample for the girls in my Technique Club. I wanted to demonstrate the different effects you could get with colouring the rubber of the stamps with Stampin' Write markers. The background panel stamps were coloured and then misted with a couple of sprays of water before stamping onto watercolour paper. The front leaf did not have any misting. I think this would be fine for a male birthday card don't you?
Tomorrow morning I'm heading off to Canberra for the 2012 Stampin' Up! Convention. I'm really looking forward to catching up with Shelli, the Stampin' Up! staff from US and Australia and of course all my fabulous team and demo friends. Convention is awesome! I'll be sure to post when I get back, but for snapshots of action along the way, be sure to like my Facebook Page (right hand column over there ->) and you won't miss a thing.
Hope you have a happy week,
