Call for a plumber!

This week's challenge at CD Sundays is  Forever in  Blue Jeans. I really didn't think I would have anything suitable, but a search through the CD The Best of La Pashe 2012  produced this denim-bottomed plumber, complete with impressive "cleavage", and also a whitewashed brick backing paper which reminds me of my gran's outside loo back in the 1950s.

I seldom make humorous cards or use cartoon style decoupage, so it was fun to try something completely outside my comfort zone.

The two jeans pockets are made with peel offs and denim effect card from a kit I bought many, many years ago from QVC.  Thanks to all the tips that were commented and tweeted to me when I mentioned the other day that I had problems showing the depth in dimensional cards, I  lit it from the side and took the photo without flash. So at least there are some shadows to show  the depth. I need to practise a lot more,but at last I'm heading in the right direction.

  2. What a great humorous card Jane, it did make me giggle. Like you I seldom make "funny cards", as I'm never sure how the recipient will take them. Although the images on this CD are so good, I think I might chance it occasionally. thank you for joining in at CD Sunday this week.

  8. Thanks for all the comments. I really only bought that CD because I wanted the image of the House on the Bridge in Ambleside. I've had it for about a month and have already used it more than any other CD I own (but not used the Ambleside image yet!. There really does seem to be something for every occasion on it.

    I'm never sure how recipients will take humorous cards either, Sue, and I've always thought my husband would cringe if he received one. Yet he loved this one. Maybe it "spoke" to him as the plumbing in our house leaves a lot to be desired.
