May the Forties by with you – Color Challenge #861

Tuesday’s Color Challenge hosted by Karen Barber was looking for Cajun Craze, Pool Party, and Mossy Meadow.

I approximated those colors by using Distress Oxide inks in Fired Brick, Tumbled Glass, and Peeled Paint.  I needed a birthday card for our friend who just turned 40.  He’s a big guy–almost like wookiee sized.  Everybody calls him Chewie.  So I needed a Star Wars card.  It might be hard to see the colors in my background, but I do love the look of Distress Oxides on black paper.

I sponged a sort of aurora look on the black and then splattered stars across the sky with white acrylic paint.  The Chewie and Han Solo bear digi stamps are so cute, aren’t they?  I got them as a prize from 2 Cute Ink.  Then I was left with the question of how to make this card a 40th birthday card.  So I did some googling and found the perfect sentiment:

I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word and saved it as a PNG file for future use.  If you’d like to use it on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
