You're Not as Old As.......

Hello Crafty Ones!
Today's post is for the latest Anything Goes Challenge 
over at Mix It Up and we are
Water Colouring this month
as our Optional Twist. 

I had so  many ideas floating through my head I didn't know
if I was Arthur or Martha!
I finally decided to play with a few of my oxide inks
and this is what transpired.
I used TH Fossilized Amber (and in distress)
 Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo.
Card stock is SU
inked in TH Distress Vintage Photo 
I though it looked rather bare so added some
a bit of spritzing with TH Antique Bronze Spray
and the perfect sentiment 
I'm thinking this will be perfect for my Brother in Law's Birthday.

Hope you liked my creation and 
Thanks for popping in.
Don't forget to pop over and see what
my Team Mates created.
Love to see you over at Mix It Up this month.

Don't know who won, if it was Arthur or Martha, but the result was fabulous Ina (so way out of my comfort zone)!

Such great results with those oxide inks, SS. Your BIL is going to enjoy getting this. (Made me giggle)

I love the vintage look your background gives Ina and that sentiment is so true. I recently had a birthday, so it really made me smile!

Great greeting, always makes me smile. I love your design, you are the queen of backgrounds and then stamping the focal over the beautiful color. Fabulous card!

Fab card and I love your remark about not knowing who you were. But your card worked out well no matter if you were Arthur or Martha. I think your brother-in-law will like it too.
