I see you're another year older!

Happy birthday to a very good friend and our former attorney back in New Jersey!  This character looks a bit like him..not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing!  lol

Gray, orange, watercolor cardstocks

Marvy wet looks embossing marker (black)

Ranger:  clear embossing powder; Jet Black archival ink; distress crayons (Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge); distress ink (Frayed Burlap, Ground Espresso); Distress Oxide inks (Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Walnut Stain); distress embossing powder (Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge); black embossing paste

Stampers Anonymous CMS288 Hipster; mini stencils (010, 072, 074)

Sakura Black Micron pen, size #01

Sentiment (Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers now belongs to Stamp Francisco - I think)

This was my second attempt using the new Distress Oxide inks.  I haven't found them to be the most friendly for me...yet.  I did buy just a few colors as I liked the organic look (mossy, rusty, stony) that they could lend to my art.  They are okay on decent watercolor cardstock, terrible on Ranger's black tags, and pitiful on cheap watercolor paper.
