Visible Image "Art Rebel" Birthday Card

It's that time of year when I needed to make a birthday card for my Hubby.  I've been putting it off for a couple of weeks, but time is running out so I bit the bullet and made this card for him.

I used a piece of white 6x6" card for the base and lay the Visible Image "Square Route" stencil over to the left hand side of the card. I used two shades of Archival Inks through the stencil, first using "Shadow Grey" and then "Garden Patina" fading the colours out towards the right hand side of the card.

On a separate piece of white card, I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to stamp the three face sections from the Visible Image "Art Rebel" stamp set. I then cut the three pieces down along the stamping line and inked the bare edge with a finger dabber and "Nocturne. Then glued the three sections into position slightly to the right of the central point of the card.

Once the glue was dry, I mounted the card onto a piece of black paper and then on to a 7x7" white card blank.

Now it was time to add the extra details.  I added the horizontal lines from the left of the face  and the large dot/splatters at the bottom right of the face from the Visible Image "Set the tone" stamp set with Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I used the same ink with the vertical lines on the Visible Image "Shape It Up" stamp set.

I then moved on to the sentiments.  I used the "Cheers" from the Visible Image "Bring on the beers" stamp set and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from their "Happy Birthday" stamp set.

Finally, I added some black and white dots using Ranger "Enamel Accents" and used Ranger "Glossy Accents" for the lenses of the goggles.


  1. That's a quirky image but fun too Sam, and with the stencilled squares and the lines and splatter stamps and in black and grey for a monochrome look which really suits it, a fabulous card for your Hubby, and I bet he loved it. x
