Ian - Anya's boyfriend!
Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. but I've been busy making a card box / carrier, so that my daughter can take my cards out and show her friends - hopefully selling some along the way!! I don't actually make my cards with a view to selling them, just for my own enjoyment really, but if anyone likes them enough to buy, that's lovely.
Anyway, I've finally gotten around to playing with one of my new Ian stamps, from The Greeting Farm. (For anyone who isn't in the know, he's Anya's boyfriend). I've had the checked paper for quite some time, and thought it a good colour combo for a 'male' card, but didn't have anything to go with it, apart from the matching plain green, so thinking cap on, and suddenly I had it!! A nice brown ink, used with a splodgy patterned rollargraph stamp, and I was away. I treated myself to the rollergraph guide a couple of weeks ago, and while it seemed expensive at the time, it has made it SO easy to line up the patterns and make my own background designs. I can see it's going to get a LOT of use!!
As usual, Ian was coloured with copics. The 'Hey dude' sentiment was computer generated, and the 'Happy Birthday' was a stamp from Claire Curd's sentiments collection.
Hope you like the card
