Grandpa's barn card

Here is another DT card made for Beccy over at 'Beccy's Place'.
This card was made using Beccy's 'Grandpa's Barn' digi image,
available HERE..I used various distress inks on this card as I felt
 I wanted a more  'aged'  look to the card. I used my rectangle
 nesties to cut the main image after printing out. Then I used
 'antique linen' DI, for the edging,'peeled paint' DI for the trees
 & a few touches using  Copics & Promarkers. I layered the main
 image on another white matt for dimension. The sentiment was
 computer generated and I used a bit of DI on that too, then
 popped it up on 3d pads.I used my rectangle nesties to cut the
 label.I first cut a small piece of card then cut one side. Then
 putting it through again on the other side I managed to cut
 a tiny label.So in other words I only cut one side at a time .
 That's just some info in case you haven't used your nesties for
cutting small pieces of card this way :) Hope you like the
 finished card.
ps. More news on my brother, the cancer is slow growing &
only small so he can wait for an op for a while. His heart
problems are causing him the breathing trouble not his lungs. So
they hope to sort that out so he is strong enough to have the op
at a later date.So better news than we at first thought which is
more positive.
Also I got my £50 back I had 'lost' yaaaaahhhhhh!!!! it seems
I did leave it in the cash machine and some kind lady ( angel)
handed it into the shop. :)

Oh! Viv I am sooooo glad you got your money back, yep, someone is looking after you, hope your brother will have a bit of your luck too. My brother was diagnosed with Lymphomea in January, thank God his treatment seems to have worked.

I love what you have done with Beccy's image, so clean and lovely.
