Good afternoon. I'm taking a break from preparing our house for guests next week. My college friend that I haven't seen for more than 10 years is coming from England for the week.
I am SOOOO EXCITED!!!!
But lets get grounded, I need to share with you all this card I made for a colleague of my husband. The instructions were 'he likes doing up old tractors'
So I had a digital stamp of a John Deere Tractor and just needed to 'rust' it up a bit:
I used Prismacolor pencils to color it, this was my first attempt and using the pencils for a full image and realize there is a learning curve with them!
I used a grass patterned paper on my card base along with mats of green and black like my image.
I angled the image on the card and added a die cut Happy Birthday which was 2 cuts one black one green and placed on top of one another to give a shadow.
A few black card candi finished the design.
I just hope the recipient doesn't pledge allegiance to the International!
Thanks for stopping by and if you like what you see please leave me a comment - it will make my day!
