Its very dull here today and haven't managed to catch the metallic accents on the card as much as I would have liked. I found a picture of an old vintage bike in black and white and printed it out onto some card, added some greys shading with pro markers and a pencil, distressed most of the edges of paper and card stock by either using scissors, tearing and also screwing up the paper I designed then went Tim Holtz distress ink mad on all my card and stock.
I finished this card by inking up some Tim Holtz gadget gears die cuts. I'm hoping my brother likes it :)
The last card I managed to make was a card my daughter asked me to make with 20 minutes notice as she was going to a friends birthday and forgot to ask me to make one earlier, so it did feel a little unfinished as it was a bit of a mad rush especially seen as all my craft items are stored in the back of my laundry cupboard and takes so long to pull out! Any way here it is......
Maybe sometimes simple is better? I'm not sure as the middle looks bare to me???? Anyway here I used a Gorjuss stamp image and some old paper stock I've been meaning to use for sometime and then distressed it with black soot Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges. I used a Sizzix die cut corner flourish and added some pink mulberry roses that I also distressed with the same black soot ink, I then added a stamped sentiment onto some lace. I'm still being critical of my inking and keep looking at what I could have done better to the hair but its still a learning curve to me as find black hair hard to get right
