One For The Boys!


It's time for the Art Impressions Challenge for this week, and it is #27.  Time to create one just for the boys.  I have used Harv and an AI sentiment, G1446.  I just found this fun guy in my unmounted stash the other day.  Didn't know I had him, and was thinking of buying him after I saw an adorable card by one of the DT members at AI.  Phew!


I have an ivory background of Pure Luxury cs, with a striped layer from Basic Grey Granola.  The Spellbinders Sprockets have been laying on my desk cut out for months. (Thanks Carol!)  I knew I would find just the right card to use them on.  My image was colored in Copics and I popped up some places and then added silver drops to make it look like machinery.  I did put the large open sprocket on the inside as a frame for my greeting.  I am sure it will be either a Happy Birthday, or a Happy Retirement.

Thanks for stopping by, and I am so glad I did not miss this weeks entry!
