Birthday card for Dad from Cole (Unscripted Sketches #02)


Well I'm trying 2 new things today... a new sketch site and a new technique of printing a black and white photo onto Heavenly Blue textured CS. It turned out okay and I think my husband will like it. It's very different from anything I've done before and it's nice to go out of my box once in a while. :) I used a picture of my son from his birthday last August to wish his Dad a happy birthday... do you think it works okay?

You can find the sketch I used at Unscripted Sketches.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Happy Birthday stamp set (retired, I think)
Classmate Alphabet stamp set
Black, White Daisy and textured Heavenly Blue CS
Heavenly Blue B&T (retired)
Black ink
1 3/4" circle punch (EK Success)
2" circle punch (Fiskars)
Polka dot ribbon (Walmart)
Pop-dots (other)
Make-up sponge (other)
