Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Off to the dentist this morning, to check everything is okay from my last treatment.
Fingers crossed no added cost either.

As you all know I was very luck to get to visit Viva Decor in February and work with their new and exciting products.

Today's card has been created using some of my favourite products.
Personal Impressions website carries these products.
Check out the stockist locator for a stockist near to you!

Step by Step

1. A5 landscape white card
2. First layer I have created by using Rusty Paper and Patina together to create a rustic background. This is something I will be doing a lot off as it will be fabulous for not only male cards but also steampunk!
3. The aeroplane has been stamped onto white card with 3-D stamp paint onto white card. I then cut this down and distressed with Paper-Soft colour walnut, I stamped Explore with Memento and adhered to card base with foam pads for dimension.
4. To finish off I stamped the tag from the Adventure stamp set with 3-D stamp paint, once dry I distressed with DI vintage photo and then pierced a hole in the top, threaded string through then adhered to card with Pinflair.
5. To finish off I wrote "Happy Birthday" with black pen.
