Totally Gorjuss Challenge 97 - Manly

Hi Everyone

This is a scheduled post as I will be on my way to Harrogate for the GNPE (woo hoo) so I hope that it works - if not you won't be reading this post and I'll be a little embarrassed ;o).

So without further ado onto this weeks Totally Gorjuss challenge which is manly:


This week we have been sponsored by Crafter's Companion so make sure you go and check out what the fabulous Gorjussetts' have created - totally fab and some great inspiration.

Here is the card I have created:


The recipe for my card is:

Stamp:  Mo Manning "The Engineer"
Papers:  Scrap Matters "Aviator"
Buttons:  From My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000
Everything Else:  E49 E47 E44 E43 E42 E41 E40

I have also used a Cuttlebug "Spots & Dots" embossing folder and sanded the top and everything has been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Inks.

The Aviator papers are not this sepia colour - to achieve this I have opened the papers in Photoshop and then changed the colour to sepia tones - cool huh!

That's it from me today - I'm probably sweating at the amount of money I have spent at Harrogate.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

See ya.

Hi Hazel, what a great card - wonderful image and beautifully coloured. Hope you had a good time at GNPE - I used to get there everytime (even tho it's a 2 1/2hr drive!) but not been for a while. I used to melt the credit cards everytime - hope you got some good goodies! Sarah
