Happy New Camera

My hubby has just upgraded his DSLR camera and one of our very best friends has bought it off him. We were due to met him in Brum and literally half an hour before we went out Paul said ‘do we have a happy new camera card’ ? Of course I didn’t…. I mean niche or what?

So he really wanted me to make one as it is a special ‘man’ event to have your 1st DSLR big grown up camera so I was racking my brains what to make. I was convinced I had a camera image digi somewhere but could not find one in my collection. I realised I was getting confused as I had recently seen a rubber stamp in an email from  the Glitterpot site which is like a collage of lots of camera images. So, obviously pushed for time I went hunting in my digi stash and found this old camera image freebie from Beyond The Fringe Crafts. I used a polaroid digi from Tiffany Doodles and inserted a sentiment from Random Thoughts at Linda’s Place

The image has been printed out, coloured with a pale grey Promarker and mounted onto 3d foam. I added a grey square to the polaroid and then overlaid the sentiment. The cardblank was covered with a spotty paper from a Dovecraft First editions pad called Noir Chic which I have had for about 4 months and not used before. I see these pretty Dovecraft pads and HAVE to have them. I use most of them straight away but hadn’t this one. I think maybe it is because the papers have a greenish tinge to them

Anyway, it was quite a quick card to put together once I stopped panicking and decided what I was going to do. Paul like it and our friend Scott absolutely loved it and that it was made for this special event.

For me, it is as CAS a card as I have ever made and quite a shock to my system I can tell you!!

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – 4” Square
Images – Polaroid by Tiffany Doodles & Vintage Camera from Beyond The Fringe Crafts
Sentiment – Random Thoughts at Linda’s Place
Paper – Noir Chic First Edition pad from Dovecraft

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
