Happy Birthday – Joanne Simons

Hi there Dusty Fanattics!
I have a couple of male themed cards to share with you today using stencils to create a background.
To start I covered my white cardstock with some distress oxide ink in a couple of different colours.
Once they were dry I added some extra colour using some more distress oxide ink through some stencils.  The stencils I used were the Distress Grid and the Large Dot.
I then set about adding my chipboard elements to my card fronts.
For this first card I used the Diamond Panel along with the Designer Discs #15 Cogs.  I also tucked under one of the Boho Feathers.
All my chipboard I primed with black gesso first.  I added some prima waxes to the feather and the cogs. 
To give the diamonds a litle more texture I heat set them with some chunky gold embossing powder. 
To finish off my card I added a Mini Tab to the centre of the card.
For my second card I again added some chunk embossing powder to the diamonds.  This one had bits of white/silver in for a bit of a distress finished.
The winged key chipboard along with the large cog from the designer disc cogs set I primed in black gesso and added some prima waxes.
I added the mini Happy Birthday sentiment to the card which was also primed in black gesso and had wax added.
