Retro TV

For my Digi Darla hop post please go here.

So I have good news!!!!  I was able to get exempt from the jury duty!  Thank god because there are 2 coming up... and from what the judge mentioned they will last around 1 to 1 1/2 years!  That's 5 days a week...for a year 1/2.  Plus obviously at the end it will take the jury some time to review the evidence.  That would not have been good... So I used the fact that I have 4 kids!  The judge exempted me.  For once having those kids paid up lol.  Seriously it would not have been a good thing family wise.  Being out of work for so long...

I was totally exhausted after this.  What a rollercoaster of emotions.  I would make one lousy criminal because I was a nervous basket case to talk to the judge and the lawyers to tell them that I was not a good choice.

To relax tonight I made 2 cards.  I'm going to show you the 1st one.
I used Retro TV from Birdie Brown as well as the sentiment Staytuned.  I used my copics to color it up and a CM silver pen for the nobs, then I used glaze all over the front to give it the glossy look like a real tube tv.  I used Rocket age 8x8 from October afternoon paper.  I thought it was the perfect retro feel for this.  I had some left over from my card from little summer boy so used the same star paper and used the ms border punch to make the stars.  I used Robin's Nest dew drops in silver in the corner.

Here's a closer look of the card:
 
You can see that I pop up the tv and the sentiment.

I was soooo happy with my creation... then I put it in the plastic cover bag... and the glaze was not as dried as I thought it was.  So had to scrap the tv and the sign... you will see the background again in some other card :(  Like my daughter said, "at least mom you had taken the pictures"... she's right but it really still sucks.

I followed this sketch:
F-Sketchy 14

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. feeling-sketchy - sketch
  2. Lawnscaping - use dimension
  3. Birdiebrown - the digi image
So that's this creation.  I will be back with the next one ;)  Don't  forget to leave a comment, I love to read it.
