Hey Daddy-O

Hello To You All

And a Big "HELLO" to my new follower - thank you for joining me - I am extremely flattered.

Well we've had another week of yukkie weather - are we ever going to get a Summer?  Still I hope you have all had a lovely week and are looking forward to the weekend.

I would like to share with you today a male card that I have made using a Kraftin' Kimme stamp called "Danny".

Here is the full card:

Just how cool is this guy - for those of you old enough to remember the American Sitcom "Happy Days" this fella reminds me of The Fonze!  Do ya remember him?  He always said "Heeeeyyyyy" with his thumb in the air.

Anyway enough waffle - here is the recipe for the card:

Stamp:  Kraftin' Kimme Danny
Papers:  My Minds Eye On the Bright Side - One
Card:  Bazzill Cardstock Artic and Stonewash
Star Die:  Die-namics Stacking Stars

All the above is from Dies to Die For

Image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000
Hair:  C8 C6 C5 C3
Jacket, Glasses & Boots:  N8 N7 N6 N5 N4 N3
Jeans:  B99 B97 B95 B93
T-Shirt:  C1 C00
Motorbike C8 C7 C6 C5 C4 C3 C2 C1 C0 C00
Motorbike Tyres:  N8 N7 N6 N5 N4 N3
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have outlined the image with Slate Grey Prismacolour Pencil and used a little 90% and 70% Cool Grey and 90% and 70% Warm Grey Prismacolour Pencils on the image

I have also gone around all the edges of the card with Faded Jeans Distress Inks and used some Glossy Accents on his glasses

And there you have it - a cool card for a cool dude.

I hope you all have a great weekend; thank you as always for your lovely comments they are as ever very much appreciated.

Hi Hazel, another fabulous card - love the image and yes he does make me think of The Fonz (makes me feel old just thinking about when that show was on and the terrible thing is I saw the actor who played him on the TV a little while ago and he looked old!!!!!!).

Love your colouring - perfect as always.
