My two eldest boys birthday cards

It will be Peters Birthday on Sunday ,and Davids on the 1st March, so set my mind to doing something boyish!   Peters, I embossed on metal, with the Cuttlebug, then held it over a candle flame to make black blobs to add interest. The soot didn't rub off, so I was well pleased. Then I just added a domino which I had stamped with a clock, triple embossed the edges and used Diamond Glaze to seal.
Cogs cut out, again on the Cuttlebug, with Tim Holtz die, and coloured with glimmer mists.
Davids on much the same lines, except for the grass, and that was clear embossed. Alcohol inks on the bird metal.
Happy Birthday to you both xxxx

smarty pants - why didnt I think of the sooty stuff

This is an ATC which means an Artists Trading Card where people from all over swap these little cards. They measure 2 1/2ins by 3 1/2 ins and they cannot be bought.
