It's cyclin' Sunday here on IACW
I've always been fascinated how things work and when our computer keyboard became defunct I decided to take it to pieces.
It's amazing how many "useful" bits you can find.
My brother-in-law is 50 this year and works in computers so what better start for creating his card.
I used distress inks to color the background, added a tissue Union Jack and then layed over some pieces from the keyboard, using brads to hold the silver layer in place.
I then added the keys (I used a small hacksaw to cut the back off them so they sat flat on the card) spelling his name and an arrow and 50.
Having enjoyed creating this card so much I then made an altered canvas to use as a birthday card for a friend.
I painted the canvas and stuck on a Union Jack tissue again
I then built up layers with, stamps and stencils
You can see from this image I've added some wires (they were cut from the cable), I bent them.
Then I added a piece of bling, a capacitor, a resistor and Happy Birthday.
Thanks for looking, do try using something different in your crafting.
