I have to say that I think this Silhouettes stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle is one of my favorites as it is so versatile.
For this birthday card, I started out with a vintage book page and I heat embossed the image with Clear Detail embossing powder. Then out came the Distress Inks (Vintage Photo and Gathered Twig) and I just started adding ink to the paper with my blending tool. Once I was happy with the results, I wiped a paper towel over the embossed area to get the excess ink off. (This is called the clear resist technique). I colored a few pearls with my Copic marker, added a bit of yarn and adhered it to my panel. The sentiment is heat embossed with Brown Fizz embossing powder. Even though the image is flowers, I think it has a nice masculine feel to it.
