My husband needs a card for his cousin who just made it through a grueling apprenticeship. When I found out he likes "The Walking Dead" I began looking through my stamps to see if I had any that would work for a "congratulations" type card. I came up with this, and I think it turned out fantastic!
The card base is from SVG Cutting Files. It is called Curved Card Base. It is about 5 1/2" tall when folded. It is hard to see in the picture, but the background layer has a subtle arrow pattern on it. I inked the edges of the card base with black soot Distress Ink and the layer with peacock feathers Distress Ink.
Daryl is a cut from SVG Cutting Files, but it is one that is no longer available. He is about 4" tall. I inked every piece of him to give him that grungy, dirty look. I even used some sandpaper to distress his pants before I inked them up. I used the following Distress Inks for various pieces: tea dye, pumice stone, vintage photo, & black soot. Before adhering his pants I added some twine, that I covered in tea dye Distress Ink, around the pant legs. Daryl ties the bottom of his pants and I thought this would be an authentic touch.
Overall I am super pleased how this turned out and I hope my husband's cousin likes it.
