Right, I finally got round to making Elliots birthday card. He will be 15 on Sunday, obviously I was incredibly young when I had him!!

In my last post is the picture of the tag for week 2 of Tuesday Taggers challenge (bold and bright). I wanted to use this on Elliots card with a photo of him in the 'cut out' bit but thought it looked a little young for him so I have grunged it up with black staz on and mounted it on Kaisercraft paper that I have torn and inked around the edges.

The photo of Elliot is of him 'done up' as a punk (he doesn't normally look like this). He very kindly offered to be 'punked up' for a girl in his photography class, so that she could take photos of him for a poster. When the day was finished he thought that no one would remember the day he wore make up at school but the finished poster was so good that it is on display in school - so he just can't get away from it. Fortunately, he is good natured about it so I thought I would wind him up abit with his birthday card.

When I picked him up from school and noticed he'd got eye makeup on I was a little shocked and he said in a very 'gay' voice "oh, I thought I'd got it all off, it's playing havoc with my skin" - he's got a very dry sense of humour! Hope he likes his card.


  1. Wow Jo love what youve done with the tag and Im sure Elliot will too! You are good at grunging!

  2. Brilliant card Jo and the tag is great on it. I really enjoy doing grungy stuff for my growing up kids, it's fun isn't it?
