The theme this week at Make My Monday is "Anniversaries". I stamped a card using this funny version of "American Gothic". (I'm not sure of the stamp company so I can't give them credit).
I always thought "American Gothic" was a painting of a husband and wife. However, I did some research and discovered that the artist meant the painting to represent a farmer and his daughter. My apologies to Grant Wood (the artist), but I am using this couple for an anniversary card.
To make the card, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Tim Holtz distress inks in yellow, pink, orange and purple. Next, the stamp was inked with black ink and stamped onto the Distress Ink piece. I trimmed it down, added two pieces of washi tape over the bottom (circles and lines on top). The brown frame was die cut from a Spellbinders die. The background paper is from BoBunny.
