Today it is Mr P's 50th birthday!! We went last week to see Paloma Faith as a pre-birthday celebration and next week we are having a family meal out to celebrate. So today will be a quietish day and I will cook him one of his favourite dinner's tonight - Steak & Chips with Lemon Meringue Pie for pudding. If anyone does pop round to visit today I do have a Lemon Overload Cake on standby.
As always I have made him a card and it fits nicely with this month's challenge on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog which is to make masculine cards.
The image is a Penny Black cling stamp 'Engineer' which I coloured with Promarkers (Almond, Putty, Pale Pink, Primrose, Denim Blue, Heatwave, Shale, Raw Sienna, Cocoa, Lipstick Red, Berry Red, Sand dune, Pastel Beige, Cool Grey 1-4, Ice Grey). I stamped and coloured the image twice and then cut out and stuck over the base image using Pinflair gel.
