...that (sigh) just totally looks like an ordinary card. because somehow, the ones you spend the longest on, and sort of fall in love with, always do, don't they? or is that just me??
(patterned paper: my mind's eye, 7 gypsies, cosmo cricket; decorative tape: tim holtz; acrylic brackets and clocks: heidi swapp; rub-ons: basic grey, making memories, 7 gypsies; inks: ranger, colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, sewing machine)
ok, so, as i said, this thing doesn't LOOK all that impressive-- probably because i could've whipped up something similar using pre-made digi-frames and brushes in a few minutes. but in fact this time i went super-stashy and super-OLD-SKOOL: every single flourish, all the distressing, even the gazzillion layers around the edge were put on one at a time by me using a wholllllllllle lotta old white rub-ons, loads of tissue tape, a million inks, more rub-ons (in black this time), some ancient heidi swapp ghost shape clocks and then finally some serious sewing-machine enhancement of "father" and all the edges of the main panel.
don't get me wrong, apart from the fact that jeff's dad is one of my favorite humans on the planet... (and also the living embodiment of the quote i used!) ...just from a creative standpoint, making this totally fun and completely satisfying. i just wish it didn't still LOOK LIKE i whipped it up in a few minutes using pre-made digi-frames and some brushes. sigh... :) :) :)
i hope you'll jump over to SOS this week and link up your own super-stashy, mega-manly creation; but at least go check out the DT cards because they are ♥AWESOME♥ and guaranteed to inspire!!!
