Enjoy 17 Theo

Another teen birthday card - great fun to make.  The main card is an A4 kraft card folded in half.  Tim Holtz tissue tape is applied diagonally in stripe patter across the whole thing.  The boy is Paper Artsy (I think! - I have lost the packaging again) stamped in blue, cut out and mounted on a piece of shiny black card with metallic markers puddled on it and allowed to dry.  This piece mounted on white and then mounted on top of a blue piece stamped in dark blue versamagic ink with the other stamp from this set, one of the stamps says 'if people did not do silly things sometimes, nothing intelligent would ever get done'  - very neat! This piece is mounted onto white card.  The kraft text pieces are edged in dark blue versamagic ink ; the 17 is a rub on and the other words were done using an alphabet stamp set.  The flourish is a Tim Holtz sizzix die called Elegant Flourishes.  I hope you like it :)
