Hedgerow Tractor !

A card for my Brothers birthday. One of his hobbies is renovating old tractors so I tried to find a picture of a very decrepit looking one, think this one would be too much of a challenge even for him.!  The papers are Graphic 45 steampunk. The old fibre gasket I found in the garage and embossed it with copper and verdigris as I did with the washers. Had to use a peel off for the birthday greeting as I could not find a stamp to go in the space .  It must be a year since I started my blog as my very post was a card for his birthday. I spelt the title as My Bothers birthday and did not know how to correct it !


  1. Its a fab card Joan, love everything about it. You really should have a go at the Compendium of Curiosities as know you would love it. Annette x

  2. Joan, this a perfect card for Dennis, I think if he had the chance he would have a go at this tractor!! I love what you did with the washers and gasket! Fabulous! Love Diane..oh guess you found out how to change the title, good for you!

  3. Its a fantastic card, a great idea to use the washers etc from the garage.
