I've been mulling over ideas for a birthday card for my nephew for several days, and when I saw the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge to make a card with a television show theme, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
He loves LOST (and loves beer), so what better than a Dharma Initiative-themed beer label design. I also used Dirty Girl Rainy's Sketch for my design.
I printed the Dharma Initiative Beer Label from the Internet and dirtied it up using Old Paper and Tea Dye Distress inks (the white paper was too bright for the vintage vintage magazine page about airplanes (ala Oceanic Flight 815) that i used for my base paper.
The constellation paper & sentiment border design are from DCWV's Natural Matstack and a scrap of Graphic 45's Shutter Speed paper. I finished with a sentiment from DRS Designs & two metal leaf brads (because there were certainly a lot of leaves on the island).
As I have said before, one of my favorite things about making cards is that I can always make the "perfect" card for any occasion.
