Hello! Here I am with a birthday card for my son. He turned 30 in May. Does that mean I am getting old? Ha! It kind of hit me. Lately he has been doing a lot of mountain biking. So that explains the card. The bike looks kind of ghost like but his bike is gray so there it is.
The background is a combination of stamping, ink blending and coloring with Copics.
The dirt is ink blended and then stamped with an old Stampin Up stamp I found in my stash that is perfect for dirt. The grass I think is ink blended. The trees and mountains are colored with Copics. The sky is ink blended. The birds are stamped using a Hero Arts set.
The bike stamp was a lucky find. I got it the same day I made the card which was either the day before his birthday or on his birthday. I got it at either Michaels or Joanns and neither one has that great of a selection so I was very lucky to find it. It may not look like a mountain bike but at least it doesn’t have a cute basket on it with flowers.
I put the sentiment on the inside because I didn’t want it on the scene.
