ClockWorks Happy Birthday

Clockworks 039

Our swap theme for the February Sunday Stamp Club was "masculine birthday."  I find that masculine-themed cards are sometimes hard to pull off, so I recently scoured Pinterest for some ideas.  I found inspiration for this card on Laura Bassan's website.  On the inspiration card, Laura had used acrylic paint for the swipe.  Instead, I used Marina Mist reinker brushed on with a wide foam brush.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and I got out long retired Clockworks (one of my all-time favorite stamp sets-great for masculine cards) to complete the images on the card.  I used almost all of my circle punches for this one!  This didn't end up being my swap card, but I like it, and it's ready to be used when I need a masculine birthday card!

Other Supplies: Clockworks stamp set (retired), foam brush

Happy Stampin'!
