CRAFT challenge – #611

Coloured with Chameleon pens, t ty his image made me think of all of the people that have been out nurturing their gardens while lockdown has been going on.

Dream Valley Challenge #203 – Only Boys Allowed

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge!

I love this gamer image from Sheepski Designs, our sponsor this time. So many men are gamers these days that would be an excellent digital image to add to you collection.

I coloured in the image with my chameleon pens and cut it out on my scan n cut machine. I stamped the sentiment from a stamp set I have in my stash and inked up the background behind it. The background paper I also added ink to and stamped with the second generation stamping technique so that the background was muted. I mounted the sentiment onto black card to make it stand out. The controller die cut I had in my stash and I just added some rubbing wax to it.

CRAFT challenge #514 – Fathers Day

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter.

This image made me think of the exaggeration we sometimes hear about when a guy has been fishing…. I could just imaging him actually sitting against a tree thinking about how big the fish he just lost really was and this was the thought I wanted him to have on the card. I think he’s dreaming of the size he’d like to report back when he sees his mates!

I chose to mount this on a background paper which looked masculine and distressed, and to colour the digital image with some water colour pencils.

I’ve had these pencils for many years (since I was a teenager) and can remember my next door neighbour borrowing them to try them out. He was a well respected artist within Birmingham, an ex Head Teacher and a man who I respected greatly. He did me a picture with them of a jazz band which I still gave to this day. Sadly he himself is no longer with us.

I hope you enjoy playing along with this weeks challenge.

#469 CRAFT challenge – Father’s Day / Male

Come over and join us at CRAFT challenge our sponsor for this challenge is sweet n sassy stamps.

The image and the sentiment are from sweet n sassy. I used a white piece of card which I embossed and inked for the background.

I’ve used this embossing folder several times for men’s cards as it give an instantly manly feel to a card. The tools fitted with this theme too. Quite a simple design but I think it looks good.
