Hope you're all well this fine morning - the weather is still holding out as I write this post, but as I'll be stuck in the office all day it doesn't much matter what happens after I go out the door and off to work!
Its an exciting day over at Moving Along With The Times this week - its our third birthday - three whole years of fun challenges .... and we're ready to celebrate. The challenge this week is not for a week - its a fortnight!! The DT will be posting cards again next week but you have a whole to weeks to enter this huge challenge, with a whole host of prizes on offer from our fantastic sponsors. Remember you can enter a maximum of 3 times and combine as many other challenges as you like, the challenge is - obvious - how could it be anything else!
The card I've made is for my son Tom who is 20 tomorrow. He's away on holiday this week at an activities centre - canoeing, zip wires - those sort of scary things! Definitely not my cup of tea - I'm scared in case I fall of the kerb!! Anyway this card is made using Saturated Canary's Usherette. The DT girls were really lucky to be given a whole selection of images from all our different sponsors and we've all made a selection of cards to show you over the two weeks of the challenge.
I knew this little usherette was the perfect image for a card for Tom when I saw it when it was released earlier this year, so I jumped at the chance when the lovely Krista said we could all choose one stamp from her fab shop for this challenge. Tom is studying film and media at university - he lives and breathes film, not just going to the cinema, he knows anything and everything about directors, producers, film history, film scripts -all sorts of all sorts, so this was his without a doubt!! I also knew that I had this fab K & Co paper, I've had it for years waiting patiently in a pad, along with all sorts of other papers for years just waiting for this stamp to come along!! I tried to get a very vintage look to this card - sort of Film Noire with a splash of colour ha ha
Heres what I did...
Digi stamp - Usherette by Saturated Canary
Coloured with - Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Paper - K & Co - all the elements -"popcorn", tickets the camera scene were all cut from the one 12x12
Organza Ribbon - Carnmeal cottage
Sentiment - Anna Griffin stamp set
I was really please with the effect when I had finished - its just so him! - not that there's any Usherettes in cinemas any more but I'm sure you know what I mean. He gets home on his birthday tomorrow and I've missed him being here this week so we're out for a family birthday celebration tomorrow night!
By the time you read this I'll be sitting at my desk : ( - hope its a quiet day lol
