I have a confession..
I've been neglecting my Edwins for too long..
But you know what? Male cards are really not my thing..
A good friend of mine asked me to make a card for a gentleman who's celebrating his 60th Birthday..
She said: "..and no lace and no flowers!!!"..
Are you kidding me??
How am I gonna do that? LOL!
I had no choice..
Here's my card with Edwin With Derbyhat from the Little London Collection 2013..
Here are some more details..
The papers are from Pion Design and Maja Design..
My absolute favourites when talking about designer paper..
There's a doily and some cheesecloth.. I couldn't resist..
You can also see a light bulb charm and some corrugated cardboard painted with a bit of Gesso and Picket Fence Crackle Paint..
I really wanted to keep it simle so I used two super cute bronze buttons from my stash and some thin natural cord..
I've also added two brads on the corners of the image..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
The paper edges are distressed and sewn..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've only used a few colours this time:
Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Antique Linen and Old Paper..
The dots around the image are made with Chunky White Frantage..
So.. This is my creation for today..
Let me know what you think..
