Well, we're nearing the end of the summer holidays and for us, that signifies Tom's birthday.
He's always been one of the youngest in his class and I suppose that's always going to be the case till he leaves education and starts out in the world of work!
But today, he's sweet sixteen!
I saw a fabulously apt image over at Mo's Digital Pencil, called Computer Guy. Tom loves his computer and computing and it's one of the A levels he's going to be studying.
This is what I made him:
I painted the background with green, blue and soft gold acrylic paint. Then, I inked a SplodgeAway steampunk mask with Versamark, ran it through my Grand Calibur and heat set it with black sparkle embossing powder. I replaced the mask and highlighted certain areas with paint. I also painted lightly through sequin waste.
I coloured the digistamp with promarkers and darkened the edges with acrylic paints. To finish off, I stamped and embossed the '16' and 'today' using Clarity stamps.
Well, my summer holidays are nearly over (sob sob) and I'll soon be starting work again. I cant complain though, we have had FANTASTIC weather this year and it has been so nice to spend time outside in the warm sun.
Hope you're having a fab week and if not, it's nearly the weekend yayy!!
