Not sure how well this card is going to be received, I think the idea in my head for this card was better than it has turned out - which just confirms the fact that I am a much better copier of sketches/layouts/other people than following my own ideas...
The idea orginated from the lovely work in Craft Stamper magazine when they take some old pages; then cover them with ink and glue, stick it on and, voila, it looks amazing..... so I went shopping and found some old books, the first I have used is Now We Are Sixty (and a bit) it has poems and some nice illustrations so I thought there could be multiple uses...
I found an appropriate or, possibly inappropriate, prose about a old fella wanting "a page Three scorcher" which I thought would be good for my Dad or my Uncle - I decided better for my Uncle as I don't want to upset my Mum!!
I ripped the poem out and then inked the edges, I also coloured the image in with the inks as i thought it needed to be a bit more prominent on the card. I also used another image on the inside, hopefully for a giggle.
The papers used are by Scrappy Cat, border punch is EK Success and the stamp is Personal Impressions. All inks used are Tim Holtz Distress ones.
