Birthday Card For Painter/Decorator

Decorators Birthday Card
I have to admit to struggling a bit with this card, the brief  was “for a male, who had been doing a lot of DIY, with a bit of humour!” Simple!?????  In the end, as I didn’t have any suitable embellishments, I went to Scrappin Doodles and downloaded this clipart set:-
I have to admit I am not too keen the green cap, it looks a bit odd, but I added the badge to break it up a bit.
DIY Birthday Card
I’ve done a few simple decoupage layers on the hat, braces, brush and buckets and added googly eyes and tiny buttons.
 Picture 869
The paint splashes are clipart images I found on Google. To make them and the buckets  look more realistic I’ve added some Anita’s 3D gloss finish.  The card is A5 in size, printed and based on white linen card.  The outside of the newspaper part is mat and layered on silver mirror card.
