Liam's 60th

It's been a bit of a yeuchy damp afternoon, but that's not a bad thing as I'd a list of cards I needed to make.
Top of my list was a card for a friend's 60th .. I'd been a bit stuck for ideas and then I remembered this oldie Whipper Snapper stamp.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, and clear gloss added to his spines and nails.  If I was making it again I would have made a better job of stamping my sentiment a bit tighter!  Silver peel off numbers and silver stars to finish.

While I had this stamp on my desk I thought I'd make another one for my stash.
This one is based on Time Out #40 - to CASE Tracey.   I chalked my background idea using purple and blue, and then also added a spritz of shimmer and some sequins.  Popped my monster up on dimensionals.  Sentiment from a mixture of Paper Smooches sets.
