Growing Older But Not Up - Collage Card

I been experimenting with collage cards and some products I purchased way back last winter from Lindy's Stamp Gang after Tresa Black's Creative University art retreat.
This birthday card has A LOT going on.  I started with some CTMH Heavenly Blue cs and stamped a newspaper image on it.  Then I sprayed it with Lindy's Tiffany Blue and Van Dyke Sepia mists.  I stamped some misc. flowers over that in CTMH's Colonial White ink, and some misc. swirls in CTMH's new Slate ink.  I drew black borders with a Sharpie.  The rose in the bottom right corner is from CTMH's new Love Blooms stamp set, embellished with Liquid Pearls.  The drink glass is again sprayed with Lindy's products and really shimmers.  It's outlined in CTMH's new metallic ink pen and embellished with ribbon and a swirl in CTMH's new Ruby ink.  A strip of Tim Holtz's tissue tape is diagonal across the bottom left.  "Growing Older But Not Up," lifted from a Jimmy Buffett song, was printed with my label maker and outlined sloppily in black.  The butterfly and flower are both paper embellishments from CTMH, painted in metallic watercolor from Yasutomo.  The card base is simply CTMH colonial white distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks, Vintage Photo and Olive.  Thanks for looking! 


  1. Yes, a lot going on, but it's perfect! Love the hand-drawn look of the rose and the word blocks.

  2. Oh, fun! Looks like you did about everything you could to this card! Turned out great. . . also a good message! Hope you've been having a good uneventful summer (no more crashes to post)
