* Path of Positivity: Dashing Crow


Welcome to the February Midway post for the Path of Positivity Challenge.

This month we are designing a project that focuses on celebrating something special about a family member.

My husband is a clever and talented man, but I don't say that to his face too often :) He loves to read, watch documentaries and acquire new knowledge all the time.  One of his favourite subjects is the solar system and that reminded me of the background stamp, #398 Celestial Navigation from AALL & Create, that I used for my birthday card.  

I made a galaxy background from Distress Oxides. I splattered water droplets to bleach out some colour, then heat embossed the Celestial Navigation stamp in white. White Posca pen paint was splattered over the background. The Steampunk Dashing Crow, also from AALL & Create, seemed a fitting masculine image to be the focal point of my birthday card. I stamped him onto white card, fussy cut him then popped him on foam tape for dimension. I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting and matted it onto black card and placed it at the base of the Crow.

Here are the products I used:

We would love to see your creations!
