A place to show all my "ink works" and it's my paradise I'm sharing with you.

This is the outside of my card. I found the image free on the internet and printed it adding the words "SHH". The man I made this for is a hunter and both DH and I thought of Elmer Fudd as a really cute image. It's amazing how much out there is free. Of course I resized it and also you have to realize that I haven't sold anything ever! Thought it looked a bit plain so I edged everything with vintage photo. For those of you (I can't imagine) who don't know - that is a Tim Holtz distress ink. The butterfly is cut and stamped with Hero Arts die/stamp set. And then there is the ever present but hardly used at my house, twine. It still looked too plain so I sticked his hat and the barrel of his gun. He is on dimensionals.
This is the inside os the card. It is a pop-n-cut (a sizzix die that folds in the center and actually pops out. The leaves are sizzix and I used vintage photo on them. If you look really close, you will see the vein is not as dark as the rest of the leaves. I tried for a guy type olive green. I was working on colored patterned paper though. The deer is from a sizzix steel rule die. I really don't like that the nose on the deer comes out pointed, so I recut that part by hand. I also gave him a little eye. I used the postage edge die on the edges of the inside of the card. Added another butterfly and of course some stickles. I couldn't find exactly the wording that I wanted for the inside, so I used stickers! This paper is from a fishing paper kit that I bought when I first started. I have made lots of fishing cards since most all of the guys I make cards for fish. Hope you like this one, hope he does also. I decided not to post this on any of my groups as I don't think it fits into any of their criteria. Hugs to you all, Barb F
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
