To A Real Gent

Below is a retirement card I made for a special friend of ours, who at the ripe old age of "over the retirement age" has decided that it's time to call time on the daily grind.  He will be a big miss.

Stamps Used were PaperArtsy Gent and sentiment, and Sheena Douglass pub.

Inspired by Liz borer

Liz has been showing us some techniques on PaperArtsy blog this week and here is my take on the "painting with Grunge paste"

I got a size 7 tag and coated it with Egg Plant FF then overlaid this with Haystack, then I painted (I used the handle of the paint brush like a pencil to be honest) the words Trick and Treat in GP.  I then covered the words in Baltic Blue, then over brushed the whole tag with  Pumpkin Soup, followed by Blood Orange and finally Limelight.  I then created a border with TG Royal Amethyst and stamped the sentiment from HPHW01
