Welcome and I hope you have been having fun playing with Tim's new Distress Oxides. This is the second card I made after the playtime I had with them a few weeks ago which you can see here and here and if you missed the first, more feminine card, you will find it here.
This is what the background looked like and I love the rusty patina colours in it.
I gathered the collage elements together with a similar colour palette using Tim Holtz ephemera packs and papers.
And I made my own little cabinet card type frame using a round die and using tarnished brass distress paint on the edge of an old credit type card and stamped the stars with the broken china oxide ink.
The guy is from Tim's photo booth set.
I layered up the collage elements ......
.... keeping it all flat so that the card can go in the post easily.
I think that little bird adds extra interest and would hopefully be great for a dad who has interest in birds in the wild.
The greeting is one I made myself - I tend to print out an A4 sheet of various ones so I can pick and use one fairly quickly. I just don't own many words stamps and sometimes they're just not the right size.
Thanks for stopping bby this month, I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I used the Distress Oxides.
