Check out my take on Michelle's Card pattern

I had lots of fun creating this card, I even made the Rusty Paper using my slice tin, vinegar , water and bleach! I must say a HUGE THANK YOU to KRISTI for the instructions on how to do this!

that's the 'rusty paper you can see there in the background, I have added four eyelets to it and created a rip.

under the rip I have a layer of gold embossed wax paper and another piece of background paper which I have simply stamped with a crackle stamp.

I have also stamped onto my flower, tied on a little piece of paua shell. Cut out and embossed a heart, which again I have gold embossed. A gauze ribbon has been cut to shape and placed behind my flower, just to add a little more texture. I love Texture!!
Take a look here to see the gorgeous cards created by the rest of the team.... then...
Have a go yourself!

That card is stunning!

WOW, this card is amazing!!!
I am sure that no one else except you, Sonya, looked at it as long as I have been looking at the photos - my sister phoned in exactly in the minute when I had this card big on my screen. And then we talked and chatted about yesterday`s carnival for about an hour, while I kept on looking at this gorgeous card.
So now I know every little detail and I am still amazed, you did a great job and I love this card!!! :-)))
Hugs, Renate

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
