Playing, finally playing!

Rusted Enamel Technique on the truck

 I had a need to create  a card for a gentleman that's retiring from our workplace. These are two takes on a retirement card......
I love this truck from Stampin' Up, I used Dutch Blue ctmh  ink as my base colour and coloured over it with Vintage Photo from the Distress Ink palette, I pulled the sentiment from one stamp set and the tree from another (both close to my heart). The rest was pulled from my scrap stash :)
This started out as my take on Tim's tag for January and morphed...

I started out making this background for Tims January tag and tried to follow through with the metal embellishment, using the globe and vintaj paints. It was fun but I definately branched off the original design :).

Tim's Tag - January

I couldn't believe that I had gone 6 months without crafting or sharing. I did a few Christmas cards but gave them away without taking photos. I am going to try to at least follow Tim's tags monthly to keep myself motivated this year. That should be interesting :)
So for January :

I followed Tims technique for the background and the number rubons, which are from CTMH. I started out with a metal foil cardboard for the car diecut, but I used the vintage patina paint and a little alcohol ink to rust it up a bit. This is a card for a guy at work that is retiring. I am playing around with some other backgrounds now, too and hope to share them soon. YAY, back to crafting.
