GONE PAPER ARTSY MAD WITH THIS CARD


Yawn Yawn, what am I doing up so early.................Cramp in my leg thats what.........ooooh painful, been awake since 5am...........not good, so thought I should put this card on now because am sure I will be fast asleep after lunch until goodness knows what time!!!

Made this card for Michael one of my grandsons who will be 17yrs this coming week, he has been saving for driving lessons so I guess a cheque will be welcome, anyway I digress..... couldn't make a car type card so made this instead, well it has wheels even if they are cog ones.......... this time have used all Paper Artsy mini stamps.

Distress Inks used, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and a spritz of Adirondack Colour Wash Lettuce for the background.

Bottle Top filled with 3D clear gloss finish, Cuttlebug sentiment and 3D foam pads were used in various parts.

The corner piece with the face clock was a spare piece I had already stamped and had to be used because hadn't cut the top straight...............ouch, so hopefully it won't notice too much........

Thank you for popping into my Blog, all comments are very welcome, enjoy your day. Annette x

Hope the cramp has gone. Must have been a reaction to the lettuce leaf beating you had earlier on in the week.
