This is going to be a quick post with only one picture but I'm very pleased with this card.
The challenge over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog was to use Kraft Cardstock on a card with a Tiddly Ink image. That wasn't much of a challenge for me. I think I have more Kraft Cardstock than anything else. It is interesting inking on Kraft as opposed to white or other lighter colors because you can't do a lot of shading. It seems to make my work look better since I don't think shading is my strongest suit.
The boards are two copies of the one in Carpenter Joe's hand (click on his name to go to the store and buy him). I made them much bigger and cut them out of his hand. The interesting thing, the spot where it looks like I was drawing the continuation of that knot in the Tim Holtz Wood embossing folder is actually the edge of Carpenter Joe's hand. It lined up when I wasn't looking. I didn't even notice until I was taking the pictures to post here.
Christy over at Tiddly Inks released some very cool new digis, she calls them Gothic Pin-ups. They are a ton of fun and well worth a look. You can find them here. She has 6 girls and 3 papers to go along with them.
So, what do you think of my card? Is my inking getting any better? Don't you just love Carpenter Joe? I think I'm going to put this in the Wonderkid's lunch bag tomorrow. I went to his "Narrative Review" (his school's version of conferences) and they said he was amazing. The entire time they were talking I kept thinking, "Whose child are they talking about and can I take him home tonight?"
