Here's card #3 of my Brenda & Joe series. This one is a birthday card. I played off of Joe's denim shirt and cowboy hat for this one. The background paper is denim jeans and the bottom portion is "burlap" paper. I used denim, red trimmed ribbon to separate the two papers. There are also two different kinds of twine ribbon/rope and a brown and cream gingham ribbon. The hat is made of wood and the other 3 corners of the photo were done with tacks that I trimmed the pin part off of. The image is colored with pencils and regular brush tip markers. The background behind them was sponged with creamy brown and chestnut roan chalk inks. The inside phrase is from Art Impressions and reads Hey pardner! Here's hopin' you have a rip roarin', knee slappin' , toe tappin, brond bustin', two steppin', boot scootin' BIRTHDAY!
Tonight is the Mother/Son picnic at Dominick's school. Right now it's been raining since last night. We're hoping it will stop long enough for us to have our night but it doesn't look very good. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to show you.
