Hey, hope all is well with you and yours.
Today I would like to share a card that I had to make. Sounds a bit dramatic that doesn’t it but it was one of those ‘itches’ that needed scratching so it had to be done.
Ever since I saw the LOTV stamp Yee Haa! I have thought of Mike TV from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Why? I don’t know, but as you know he is obsessed with TV and eventually ends up in one. So that’s what I did. I put little Yee Haa! (Mike to his friends) inside a TV and of course it could only be black and white western. I have been thinking about making this card for a while now and knew that if I didn’t get it done it would drive me mad. So here we are.
I coloured ‘Mike’ and little ‘Spot the Dog’ with Promarkers and made my ‘Telly’ from the autumn collection by American Cardstock. I printed a ‘TV Guide’ from my computer and added Vintage Photo DI to dirty it up a bit and used the end of a pen lid to stamp some ‘coffee rings’ onto it. However in ratio to the guide that must be one big coffee mug!
My control buttons are cut using Spellbinders die and the sentiment from a Tattered Lace die. And to add a bit more interest I added some star metal brads.
And there you go, all done
Smiling always! (I can stop thinking about it now!)
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge – Challenge #226: INSPIRED BY A BOOK (I kept thinking of Mike TV from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl)
Hanna and Friends – Challenge # 181: BEST FRIENDS
