.... that's the brief we were given by Susan for this week's challenge on Simplicity. I had lots of ideas of Christmas themed cards, but then I realised that Heavy Metal - could be a music theme, could be a chemistry theme (sorry, that's the nerd in me creeping out to play). Or it could simply be a card for a teenage boy - perhaps someone like my son Ben!! He won't thank me for saying that though. So here's the card I came up with. It was actually really quick to make.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Free Spirit - Boy; Free Spirit - Sentiments
Embossing Powder: Stamp'n'Stuff - Detail Silver
I've noticed that many people have watermarks on their cards - and that's only right and proper, afterall the image and card belong to them. So I've been playing - all afternoon - with GIMP to try and come up with a watermark of my own. It's not too bad, but I think I still have a bit of work to do.
And that's all for this evening. I'm off to watch the new detective show on Sky - Jonathan has it on pause for me at the moment. I'll be back again tomorrow.
