..... I told you yesterday that we're off out for the day. It's our last full day in the USA. And we have to do a bit of souvenir shopping before we go home. When we went to Ann Arbor last weekend we saw a super T-shirt that would be perfect for Ben, so we're going back to get it for him. I think Ben will also like it out here - although he will be cross that we dared to venture into downtown Detroit without him first checking the place out!!! Teenage boys reckon they know it all :)) But we love him.
I have another card to share with you today - it's not been made for any particular challenge - but more a way of seeing what I could do with the limited stash I have to hand. I started off with the art papers that came free with one of the US craft magazines. I decided to try my hand at tearing paper to see if I liked it. On the various torn edges I added colour with my Memento pens - so nice to have them! Then I stamped some of the Tim Holtz images onto the torn panels. I cut out the G from one of the bits of paper. I attached the panels to the card and finished off with a sentiment from the set - about new discoveries. My discovery is that I really like this style of card and may have another go when I get home.
Stamps: Tim Holtz - City Central
Inks: Memento - Rich Cocoa; Memento Pens - Cantaloupe, Lady Bug, Tangelo, Dandelion
Accessories: Art paper from Stampers' Sample take ten; Card from stash
So that's all for now. Take care.
