Another birthday and another excuse to play with my Distress Oxides.  I just can’t get enough of these atm, and the way these colours blend together is amazing.

This one would make a really cool t-shirt lol

Love how the colours have blended on this tag

I used this fat cat stamp from Stampendous.  It’s not clear on this photo but it had to be stamped twice to stand out sufficiently against the background.

Can you see my deliberate mistake?  Yup I smudged the Happy Birthday with my hand straight after I stamped it!  I had to quickly make another one which is not shown here, so I am showing the “warts and all” photos loldistress oxide backgrounds

When I am not making cards, I like to make other stuff including jewellery and these little copper bookmarks.

Because I didn’t take a photo of the final tag that was posted to my friend, I have “reconstructed” how it looked using the flawed tag.
