A card for my Bird loving Bro

My Brother is really into animals,  his latest addition to the family is a stunning falcon.  He also loves, motorbikes, cider and anything outdoors and messy.

I treated myself to the Pinflair rust it mediums and love them,  such messy fun and a fab result, it even feels like rust.

I didnt use the pinflair on the falcons I used crackle glaze, embossing powders and distress inks,  a bit of gilding wax and two grungy but fabulous falcons, even if I do say so myself ;)

Some really cool manly papers and embellishments came with the rust it kit and they gave me loads of choice for this card.

I popped in a couple of real feathers for some lush texture and used foam pads on the for you letters.I crackle glazed the garage sign and distressed the edges.

I have had these fab little tool split pins for ages, I ised the rust it to distress them as they were silver and am really chuffed with the look for this card.

I built a decoupage motorbike from the kit and highlighted some of the bike with glossy accents.

I squished some bottle tops with my embossing machine and added a greeting to one and a cider logo to the other,

I used a few more bits from the kit for the envelope and job done.

I am entering this card in the following comps
 Eclectic Ellapu's "texture"
Simply Create Too "lots of orange or Halloween"
And over at the Outlawz for the October challenge and the Friday colour challenge.

Gorjuss Glitter is a girls best friend.... ;)

I had great fun making this card for my 9 year old niece.

I used lots of glitter and metallic paper, lovely Gorjuss die cuts and stamps and the awesome X-cut build a scene dies.

I love using the build a scene dies but so far have only used browns and greens for the forest set.  For my niece I was inspired by the Gorjuss flying horse die cut and thought using girly colours in glitter and metallic papers would make a more magical dreamy landscape.  I am chuffed with how different this die set looks using less expected colours and  am looking forward to playing around with other sets and colours too.

On the inside I made a cute little pull up surprise, just to make sure she knows I love her loads!

I used an old block stamp I have and masked of the pics on it so I could just emboss the words.I surrounded this with cute critter stamps from the Gorjuss range using versamark and gold embossing powder.

I am entering this card in Craft for the Craic's latest challenge "something suitable for a child"
