Hi Everyone, Yep! that's the theme of my card today, which is for my God Son, I know he'll appreciate it. It took ages to choose an image, in the end I chose an image that I had in 2007, talk about digging deep! I also made it for the Outlawz Sketch challenge.
Hi Everyone, I am slowly getting back to normal, but it has meant a lot of things not done as I would want here, anyhow, I'll try and catch up with you soon.
My card today is for the Outlawz Challenge which ended March 14th! Why did I leave it 'til now to post it? Well I made it for thank you cards for gifts received for my birthday, so didn't want to blog it, as I know a few people who will receive one look at my blog and I didn't want them to see it before hand. I entered the sketch challenge without posting it, promising to do it ASAP and I was thrilled to be Showcased for it at The Outlawz Sketch Challenge.
Anyhow, here it is.
I followed the sketch
DP's and images PC Hugware, sadly no longer available.
All cut and layered with honey jars 3D
The font "Honey Bee" is one I have just added from FontBundles.net
the font on the site had a honey effect and I thought, silly me, it would be like that when I wrote it, but it didn't.
I didn't know how to make it that way so emailed the site,
got a quick reply and instructions on how to make it look like honey,
now that is what I call Customer Service.
The only thing is it took me rather a long time, especially as I hadn't done anything like it before, you "may" see it again somehow.
Hi Everyone, I have really BIG apologies to say to everyone for not commenting or even blogging! It was all down to me celebrating 3 score years and 10 or in modern language my 70th birthday on the 9th. We had my Brother and SiL to visit and a LOT went on, I haven't had time to do anything, with visitors each day it seems, it has been lovely to see everyone. I'll let you know in another post what went on, as this is supposed to be a DT post, but it is late again. Shame on me.
Anyhow on to my make, NOT a card, but something I saw on the web, that made me think about my hubby and how clever he is. So my make for the
The theme is use stash and wood! So wood from hubby's stash, cut to size.
I made up the sign from tool images, I cut the vinyl with
the Cameo and laid it onto the wood
hubby screwed it to the side door of the garage.
Then sprayed with 3 layers of varnish, I think that should be enough!
It was getting late so not a good photo as it was in the
SO much out of my comfort zone, BUT I did enjoy doing this card so very much, even getting myself dirty!!!! with gilding wax. I made it really dirty, by even adding pewter gilding wax around the card too, it reminded me of the days Hubby came home with his overalls standing up on their own, with the amount of grease on them, (he was a heavy haulage mechanic in his early years). Thank goodness those days are over. Shame you can't see the shine on the card.
On to my card, I laid it all out in PS, then
printed and cut the paper and images out,
the paper was embossed with a music folder,
with the edges gilded with different shades of wax. .
Then added ribbon.
I cut the gears on my Cameo and gilded them with the same wax.
Then layered onto the paper with 3D dimensionals.
My apologies to the Team for the delay in posting this.
