Alcohol Ink Birthday

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another fabulous sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is Narelle Farrugia.  And here is Narelle's wonderful sketch.
For my card, I went with a masculine birthday card.

I took a leftover piece of alchol-inked Yupo (left over from this card) and die-cut it with a stitched circle die.  I then die-cut a black circle using the same die.  Onto the black circle I spritzed some Distress Resist Spray then sprinked on some Pewter Perfect Pearl powder.  In the photo it just looks splotchy, but in real life, it has texture and shimmer.

I finished the card with a slanted sentiment strip cut in both black and white and a simple "happy birthday" message.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll check out the rest of the design team's cards - they're fabulous as always!

I'm linking this up to Shopping Our Stash who are looking for masculine cards.

What a great inky piece (Or should I say pieces?-- I looked at the other project, too), wonderful use of this leftover Yupo! Great interpretation of the FMS sketch as well. Thanks for starting this at Shopping Our Stash! Yes, this could go to a man, but it could also go to a woman, which is a bonus! Great job!

You speak an inky language that I can't even begin to understand! But the results are stunning!

This card is out of this world! Seriously, the blue swirly circle looks like earth from the international space station! What a fantastic card!

This sketch works really well for a masculine card! I love the pattern on your alcohol inked circle, and using solid black in the background is perfect for your CAS style! Fabulous take on the sketch, Karren!
