Well, I'm on a roll......two posts in one day, think I need a lie down now!!! lol.
Above we have another of my lil sketches which I've made up into a card. This image is of me & my Nan. (who sadly passed on when I was 14) As with my other recent sketches I've used an old photo as my inspiration. The piccie was taken on a big family day out at Blackpool & my Mom tells me I was about 2 or 3 at the time. Lets just say the clothes were very seventies.....lol
When I showed this sketch to my Mom she got a bit sentimental saying, "it's my Mom & my baby!". Because of this I think I'll not let my Mom see this card & give it to her for Mother's day next year, as I feel it would be appropriate.
Back to the card.............distressed heaven...hehe!!
As you may notice I've done quite a bit of distressing with this one. Again, edges, inking & a bit of tearing. I then thought that the actual image didn't look old enough soooooo, I made hubby a cup of tea then used the tea bag/leaves to rub into the paper. This was something I remembered doing when I was little, when I used to make treasure maps & scrolls......sad I know, & I think hubby thought I'd gone mad!!!! lol. But it worked!
PP's are all K&Co, I've clear embossed the flower & image & written the sentiments, then finished off with ribbon & buttons.
Thank you for taking the time to look,
