Crafts 4 Eternity - Easy Rider .....

This card is for Crafts 4 Eternity.  For Recipe 30 there is a sketch to follow, the content should depict a film, and there should be some corrugated card on it.

If this card is not 'legal' then please ignore it!  There is no stamping on it.  I have made a montage of photos as the background, and then one as the central image which I feel really depicts that film.  There are couple of bellies from the lovely Tim Holtz, and some appropriate brads.  I have used some blingy cardstock, as bling often features in some way in this business.

I spent hours debating what to do.   I then decided that as I had masses of photos of the custom motorbikes that my very talented son, Richard, builds - he runs his own business building custom bikes of the very expensive variety. He also restores classic motorbikes.  They are a perfection in engineering and absolutely beautiful, but riding a chopper is somewhat hairy, although some others are much easier.

So I chose the cult film, Easy Rider from 1969.    Some of you may remember it!!

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.



  1. Well what a perfect card for Richard and don't those Tim Holtz embellies look good on it, love it!

  2. Val this is such an excellent take on our sketch and recipe! Wow you have a talented son, those bikes are so cool! Thanks for sharing your fab work with us this week at C4E, come back any time.

  3. I hope the card is 'legal' Val as I think your take on it is brilliant. Unfortunately, yes, I do remember the film, Lol!
