Moving on!

Hi Folks

I was asked to make a retirement card for my hubby's boss last week. I was thinking decoupage; toppers i.e. clean, then hubby said 'do one of those inky technique things you do.' Well I certainly don't need much encouragement so I set to inking, stamping and embossing - here's what I came up with:

Distress ink background overstamped with cogs from Paper Artsy and Crackle from Creative Expressions. The topper was an image from the Steampunk stamp plate from Eco Green Crafts coated in a couple of layers of clear embossing powder to create a tile. A few additions 'a la Tim Holtz' and I had what I think is a retirement card with a difference.

Well that's all for now.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I love this card! And what a perfect card for a man to give to another man in a work situation without embarassment - not an easy one,
