Mum asked me if I could make a card for my Uncle's birthday next week .. .. ummmm - nothing cute then and not too fussy! I have admired the Less Is More blog and the simple elegant creations showcased there, but rarely join in. However, the current sketch challenge appealed to me and I thought it perfect for a manly card. I've inked up one of my old Elusive Images stamps, snowdrop script, with Rich Cocoa Momento ink and stamped onto kraft card. I've initially coloured with Copics E0000, G40, G82 & YG45 then I've added a white and pale blue pencil.
And here is my card. It's a DL in landscape, difficult to photograph the whole, with a text stamped in the same ink. To draw emphasise to the image I've scored a couple of lines then pricked and inked the edges of the image before fixing flat on the card. The advantage is it should go through normal post, but I'm not sure if Mum will like it so had best get on and make something else!
The Totally Gorjuss blog challenge is for a K.I.S.S. creation so I can enter with them too.
As I expected, Mum had a couple more angina attacks this morning so I rang her doctor. She now has more tablets to take although they might give her a headache until she gets used to them .. .. so more tablets for the headache! I am hoping they will do the trick and as soon as she is stable again I can visit some of my crafty friends for a 'play date'.
