Albert's Off To Bingo!

Meet Albert - he's one of the gorgeous wrinklies from the new digi shop Just INKlined. I was honoured to be asked to be a guest DT for Just INKlined for August but I just couldn't wait to play with the FABULOUS images on offer. When the store first opened Albert was offered as a freebie - which I mentioned on a previous post so I hope many of you managed to grab him - in the nicest possible way of course - LOL. He's now up for sale in the store HERE.

I decided Albert didn't need too much embellishment - so went with some Basic Grey DP and a Tim Holtz embossed piece of CS. I computer generated the sentiment. I enjoy trying to come up with fun sentiments and had several for this guy. Another one I had was - I had my ride "pimped" - my kids LOVE the show "Pimp My Ride" - but if you've never seen it I thought it wouldn't make any sense - LOL. "Check out my new wheels" was another possible sentiment. But I do have someone in mind for this card and he does like his bingo.

I was a little disappointed after I used my crystal effects on the "window" - the colour of the handlebar changed quite a bit so I had to try and make the rest fit in! Now I could say it's all to do with light refraction through the "glass" - but I think maybe it was the markers I was using - I mainly use copics but do have several colours in another brand which is what I started out with! Ah well - live an learn!

And don't forget Just INKlined have a competition running HERE with the chance of becoming a guest designer for September and earning some free digis!!!

I've seen Pimp My Ride, so I know exactly what you mean! Maybe we should pimp Grandma E's ride (walker)... that's exactly what an old lady of 100 needs!!!

My favorite PMR episode was when they pimped up an old VW van. They installed a thing like you see on school buses, with a handle that pulls a sign out on the side saying STOP, only this one said CHILL! I want one of those to use on these dang California freeways! LOL
