Gaming the old fashioned way


Today I am sharing another retro card with you. I am challenging myself to work with subjects one wouldn't normally feature on their cards. Like Pac-man this is another game I played for endless hours when I was younger and yes I still own my gameboy which I think still works. The background on this card was created on photoshop using a free gameboy image, I love all the bright colours. On the main gameboy image I have added a digi of a pixelated heart to the middle of the screen, I have stuck the main image  to the card using self adhesive foam. Although you can't tell on this photo I added contact to the screen to make it look like glass.

Love your retro card. It saddens me to know my students would not recognize this. DH would love it! Saw you on MIM.

Darling card, Susan, but someone my age has to laugh out loud at the thought of a Game Boy being retro or vintage! Thanks so much for entering our "Anything Goes" challenge at Doodle Garden this month. Good luck in the draw and we'd be honored if you came to play regularly in our monthly challenges.
