My uncle Bill is going to be 90 this coming Saturday - wow, what an achievement!! It's good to have a happy family occasion after all our recent sadness, and hopefully it gives my dad something to look forward to (Uncile Bill is his brother) ... So in honour of this auspicious occasion I just had to make a card for him ... and here it is.
I decided to go with a fairly vintage look on account of the occasion, so I used a LotV vintage boy image, went with fairly rich vintage colours, and distressed all my paper edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.
Image: LotV Sketch Pad 1 "Vintage Boys";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; image edge distressed with TH "tea dye" distress ink;
Papers: LotV "Country Gent" and "Country Lady";
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; hessian ribbon from The Ribbon Girl; sentiment from LotV Art Pad 8; gingham ribbon from my local craft shop Edwin Allen; peel off numbers from my stash;
Tools: La La lands "Heart Banner" and "Filigree Corner" dies; Tim Holtz distressing tool on all paper edges.
