Today's card is more about concept than design and more about the recipient than the artwork but I thought I'd post it anyway. I used the sketch over at Friday Sketchers to make a card for my cousin's husband (Bob) who lives in the States and I think you might have to live in the States to fully appreciate it. My card yesterday used a great image of a workshop shelf and I have re-used that image in my card today. The thing is that whereas yesterday's intended recipient's workshop shelf probably does look just like yesterday's picture - and the cameo picture in this card (cluttered, paint spills, multiple screws in various-sized glass jars, etc.) - Bob's workshop shelves look like they were intended for a catalogue photo shoot. You could eat dinner in his workshop! Everything has a place and there is a place for everything. All of his sundries are kept in what were once oatmeal containers (we don't have them in the UK) which he paints black and then neatly labels. His tools are all neatly arranged, his shelves immaculately clean. And so this card is for him - complete with painted oatmeal containers, neatly labeled - because the card I made yesterday just didn't cut it!
PS - Once again I wasn't happy with the photo and the card needed a bit of extra balance too so I have uploaded the photo again.
