Photography Card

Its my Brother Lloyd's birthday today, here is the card I made him, as you may guess - he is a keen photographer.

The stamps are Vintage Photography from Creative Expressions.  The Main image of the camera man and the frame are stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Most other images are stamped using the same ink but I stamped on scrap paper first and did not emboss so the images were faded. The edges are inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The large film strips were stamped on acetate using black Stazon, cut out and attached with brads.  The frame and the main image are raised on 3D foam but you can't see this too well in the picture.  The numbers are cut using a Cuttlebug die and the stars are from a Crafty Individual Christmas set and I used cream and black card from my stash.  I spoke to Lloyd on the phone this morning and he really likes the card so job done!  Did you see the Olympic Opening Ceremony last night? I loved it! It was so different and so cool! I hope you have nice weather wherever you are and have a fabulous weekend.  Take care.  Christine xx

Hi Christine,

What a great card - especially for a photo buff! I'm sure your brother will enjoy it. Anything had made is so special.

I've been watching some of the Olympics. Last night I was able to watch some of the US men's gymnastics team compete - bless their hearts.

I'll see you tomorrow at WOYWW. I missed it last week.
