I really enjoyed making this for Dad, I was able play around with my stamps and inks, the creating that I really enjoy.
Apart from the tiny background newspaper print (printed from the Imagine country carnival cartridge), and the text on this card, it is all stamped and inked.
I was naughty a couple of weeks ago and succombed to another set of Tim Holtz stamps (well they were in the sale and it would have been rude not to !!?!), and I put them to good use here, the bike, clock face and chequered numbers had a vintage London feel to them – perfect for Dad. The London theme of course, not the vintage……how could you think such a thing ! hehe (only joking Dad x)
I used the faux herringbone stitched ribbon rub-ons in the background (that was a mouth full).
I made the scrolls in the cluster around the photos and stamped and embossed in copper the padlock and key.
Really love those stamps, so keep an eye open, they may crop up some more!
Thanks for looking, bye.
