Happy BIrthday

Here today I have a male card for the Watercooler Wednesday WWC 188 - Helen's Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge  --- mostly because I chose to use blues and greens not pretty colours for my Distress Ink background...and the stencil design led me to think of gears... so out came some wooden elements that I coloured with ink and clear embossed. The sentiment stamp has a distressed finish when inked but looked a bit lost so I roughly cut around it and gave it a green layer and attached with foam tape.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.


  1. Oooh, I love that stencilled Distress Ink panel you've created, Robyn! You're right that it brings gears to mind. Love that you chose those bright colours for your wooden gears. Don't they look great with that glossy finish, too! A well designed, perfectly masculine card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Robyn, what a delightfully masculine card this is. I love your choice of Distress Oxide ink colors and the glossy coated gear cog. So fun! Thank you for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday! Crystal

  3. You've put a lot of detail into this design, without it being "fussy". Great colour combo and the gears really finish it off. Thanks for playing along at Watercooler Wednesday.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
