Finally back from the cabin!! What a gorgeous time we had even though I left most all of my card making stuff here at home. I even forgot my Brother in laws birthday card that I was so excited to give him! I was giving him the sail boat card that I posted earlier titled A Couple of Guy cards. I couldn't believe that I left without it. I was pretty sure that this time I was all organized! Yeah right......Ciaos is my middle name! LOL. So as I said I was very limited with supplies, but while at an antique store I found an old printers plate and decided that it could work. So back to the cabin to go through papers I had stashed away for the grand kids to play with. I also brought out the watercolor paints so I could jazz up the background. I didn't have any embellishments but noticed the metal rim around an old coffee pot we were tossing so I clipped it off! Why not? And it worked out great. Here it is:
Well my brother in law loved it and we all had a big laugh over the metal band I used.
I even went back to the Antique store and picked up 2 more metal plate stamps. Hopefully I can come up with some real unique card ideas to use them on. I'll post a picture of those stamps later so you understand what I mean. Until then..............................
