Fungi

Here is an image I do like to use! Its from Tiddly Inks and I've coloured it with Promarkers plus a bit of inking and some dotting around the edge. I've kept it all quite simple and no printed paper in sight!

The red is from my stash and the chocolate brown pearlescent card was originally a Wedding invitation that I've recycled. The two brads are from my stash and I've handwritten the sentiment. Kraft card blank from my stash.

I did think about just adding Happy Birthday but then thought the recipient might not get the fungi link.....

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Tiddly Inks: Celebration
Cards For Men: Recycling (used old Wedding invitation card)
Smudgy Antics: Recycle Something (used old Wedding invitation card)
Frosted Designs: No Designer Paper
Here Come The Boys: Sketch followed (the photo does not show up the three brads in a row!)

  • Image: Tiddly Inks, coloured with Promarkers
  • Sentiment: Handwritten
  • Everything else: My stash
