Sorry You're Leaving

Morning everyone, hope its a bit brighter where you are coz it rained here all day yesterday and it felt really cold...I want the warm, sunny weather back!

I'm off to see the Aussie comedian, Adam Hills tonight at our local theatre...he was hilarious during the Paralympics last summer with his show 'The Last Leg' and he's back on TV at the moment with a new series on Channel 4.

I was asked to make a card for a male work colleague who is leaving to work elsewhere within the company but the card wasn't to be too fussy or cute and suitable for a man!

I had to put my thinking cap on for this one and I remembered I had some wooden alphabet stamps stashed away in the cupboard and set about stamping out the words you see on the card. I coloured the stamps with a 'Poppy Red' Promarker and you can't see too well in the photo but every few letters were raised on a 3D pad to give a bit of interest and dimension.

I kept the embellies fairly clean and simple too and have to say the card looked much better in real life than it does in the photo!

Colouring Medium: Poppy Red Promarker to colour in Stamps
Card Stock: SU! (Real Red) and Hobby Craft (Mirri Card)
