Birthday Koi

In the first week of April there are three male birthdays in my family! Thankfully none of them read my blog so I can post 🙂

I recently purchased Masculine Motifs (PTI) from a forum friend so I decided to break it in by creating all three cards with the set.

For this card I was very inspired Emily Leiphart’s card. I really loved the Retro background with the fish!

I really wanted the cool bubble lines to continue across the card, and I thought about the split negative technique. The stamping isn’t perfectly aligned but hopefully not so off as to be distracting.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday
