Tractor Time

I made this card for my neighbor who lives on a farm and happens to have a blue tractor. The stamp set is tractor time and is one of the few retired sets I have kept. I just couldn't give it up and am so glad I didn't 'cause I like how this turned out. The patterned paper was scraps I had from taking a class (I think it was from Moncton last year) so I don't know what kind it is but it was perfect for a masculine card (which I don't do enough of).

I used chocolate chip and buckaroo blue markers(in a blender pen -ask me if you don't know how to do this and I will find the info and post it) to ink up the stamp. I sponged around the edges of all papers. For the twill tape I wanted it to be more frayed (sp?) so I took a piece of the narrow twill tape from SU, cut it in half and then kind of pulled at the ends and sides.

To see what I did with the other half of the twill tape you will have to check back in tomorrow :)

I added some links on the side a couple of days ago and am going to add a few more soon so keep your eyes there and check out those links. Also, check out my SCS Gallery as I will not always have the same cards in both places. I will put the link here soon too.

I like the tractor too!!! Very cute card. It's hard to make guy cards I think. Also girls appreciate the handmade gesture more, don't you think.
