Lightbulb ......

Here is a card I made for a Challenge over on Country View Crafts Challenge Blog where Corrie has Challenged us to make a Birthday Card for a Man ......

I used a white card blank as the base. I cut a smaller matt from white card and used a stencil and yellow and orange Distress Oxide inks directly to the stencil, spritzing with water and applying to the matt. When dry I chose a lightbulb stamp (Aall & Create) and stamped it over the background with sepia Archival ink. I then stamped again on more white card with Versafine black ink this time heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I then coloured the bulb with a waterbrush and Inktense pencils before trimming out and trimmed out the 'One light bulb moment' words.

The lightbulb was added over the original image on foam pads and a black shadow applied with more Inktense pencil. The words were added over the background direct to the card.

I then stamped the sentiment in black Versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before trimming out and applying on foam pads as shown. The background was then matted on black card and three gold metallic dots added. The background was then applied to the card base to finish .....

Hopefully any man would like to receive this card for their Birthday .......
