My baby turns 18

Yup. No more children in my house. My youngest son turned 18 yesterday. This is the card I made for him. I chose an architecture theme because this is the subject he plans to study at university next year.

The background is a piece of 12x12 K&Co Life's Journey Architecture Studies. The left hand panel is a piece of card covered in crumpled tissue painted with three colours of Moonglow ink and highlighted with Distress Inks. The main image is an Illuminata stamp by Inkadinkado which I found in a box of clearance stamps at Ally Pally. There are three Stampbord 'spotlights' mounted on the image and the Architecture quote is from Beeswax stamps. The fibres are by Sara books and came with the key, which he'd seen when I bought them and already decided he wanted.

Oh Jo, this is wonderful. The colours are just right and obviously the subject of the images is perfect for your son. I love the Stampbord pieces too.

In fact everything about it is just right. Such a lot of interesting points to look at and the balance is spot on.

It's hard when your baby turns 18, because you wonder if they will still need you. We've just done a mercy dash up to the oldest at Uni, so yes, they do! Awesome card Jo,I hope he liked it.The stampboard adds great dimension,Ilove the stamp and papers, Judith x
