Today's card is for my son, who will be 38 tomorrow, although to mention age is an anathema to him, so what do I do - of course - mention his age - frequently! I'm a bad Mum. LOL.
I was wondering what to do for him this year, when I had a follower new stamps email and what was it? but "Video Game Guy" just perfect for a chap who spends most of his time on the computer, whether gaming - more than a lot! watching catch up television, researching, reading etc etc. (He has agoraphobia with a few other problems,) As he tells me his computer is his window to the world.
I paper pieced the chair and the guy's top with the DP's and coloured the image in PS, added a texture DP to the floor area and coloured the "wall" area to match the DP's. Printed it all out and layered the DP's and 3D'd the Guy and the television/monitor. Added buttons, which now look black instead of the dark blue I thought they were, blast it! That'll teach me to make something late in the evening, with just a small light on. I don't think he would notice. Although he does make comments on cards I make, 99% are very positive I'm glad to say.
The image is Bugaboo
The DP's are by Memory Clips from a digi kit Old Sport.
Sentiment is from Create with TLC.
