So, just a not-so-quick card that I would like to share with you today ;).
Szczęśliwe chwile to motyle... These are lyrics to one of my favourite Polish songs by Maanam, which means “happy moments are like butterflies”. There you go, that’s your Polish lesson no. 1 lol ;)
This card is for one of my brothers-in-law. I again challenged myself with a masculine card ;).
I based, somehow liberally lol ;), my card of the Midnight Madness sketch #59.
For the clock I used my brand spankin’ new stamps that I got…. guess where? Yep, you got it right, at the Stamp Attic, during my last weekend's workshop bonanza (which I will tell you all about later this week!). I can’t remember the name and the manufacturer at the moment, I’m rubbish with remembering that kind of stuff. But if you’d like to me check this for you, let me know and I will ;-).
The “hangy” bit was stamped on acetate to give it a glossy, “hangy/floaty” feel. The lovely sentiment is of course by Raindrop Echo. Pop in here to browse the lovely range of Ann’s sentiments.
In the bottom right corner I sneaked in a pair of vintage butterflies to compliment the sentiment. As this is a "boyz" card, I didn’t want it to look too girly with the butterflies too much on display lol). I tried to follow Ruby’s and Tink’s ribbon idea but my version is somewhat different from the experts’. Well, I am just going to maintain the view that it was carefully designed and meant this way ROFL!
A lot of distress ink later, all was screwed into place with my fav ever screw brads (just LOOOOVE them!).... et voilà!
