Hello crafty friends, it's Kerstin here!

Today I have a male birthday card for you (attention: no cute critters involved).

Lately I needed a last minute male birthday card for a colleague. So no chance to use any cute critters on this card. Luckily some of the Create a Smile stamp sets are perfect for this occasion.

  • stamp, heat emboss, color and fuzzy cut the vinyl record
  • stamp and color the bottle from the message in a bottle (in this case I tried to color it like a beer bottle)
  • create a background using one of the super cool stencils and distress oxide inks
  • for a little more interest sprinkle some water and black ink on the finished background
  • glue everything together with foam tape to add some dimension

If you want to be super quick look for precolored images from past coloring challenges.  I for example store these images in the bag of the stamp set.
