I have a card for a very special man today! Father's Day is this weekend and my husband requested a card for his dad. He is so full of life and loves to buy old things that will someday look new again. He just needs to find that time to make all those things new again. Maybe in retirement, huh!
He has several tractors and a few cars that are pretty rusty. He just loves to tinker with them. So when my husband asked, I immediately thought of an old rusty tractor. I found this Just Inked digital image. My next step was to find some pictures of old tractors so I could see how they rust. Mission accomplished!
I colored my image with copics and cut it out with a spellbinders labels 20 die. I puts some post it notes in the sky for clouds and airbrushed blue for the sky. I then removed the post it notes and airbrushed again with B000 to soften the clouds a bit.
The paper is by The Paper Studio, the old barn siding fits perfect with a tractor! I distressed the edges to give it more of an old look. The sentiment is stamped on chipboard with a Stampavive, Tina Wenke image. The sprockets are by the man, Tim Holtz. Yeap, hubby makes fun of me for my love of Tim. lol.
Can you Imagine the Possibilities for this tractor?
The inside caption I typed up on the computer. Used the same spellbinders labels 20 as the front and added another sprocket. The sentiment was printed on white cardstock and airbrushed with E33 to soften it a bit.
