Guy's life ...

... having made a card earlier using some Guy's Life earthtones vellum which has been in my pile of 12 x 12 papers for what seems like forever I decided I ought to try and make cards with the offcuts rather than banish those to a box never to see the light of day.

So I've dug out some deckle edged stamped images of motocrycles - this one is embossed, although it doesn't like it here - I inked the edges with a Marvy alcohol pen - and I found a sentiment that matched up. Once again I've used some of the brads I've been hoarding for years, so all in all, I'm quite pleased with using up some old stuff.

I've discovered that vellum is nearly as difficult to photograph as mirror card!

This is for:
