Well Hello Everyone

I hope you are seeing this post as I am away working for the next two weeks - boo!  I know I haven't been round to see all you fabulous people for a couple of weeks but I promise to make it up to you when I get back.

I would like to give a great big "HELLO" to my new follower Lisiane - thank you for choosing to come and look at my little creative spot I am very flattered.

Well what a week we have had with the weather - freezing cold, then lots and lots of snow, tons of rain and then sunshine!  For those in the UK, have you notice the nights are getting a little lighter - yay - let's hope it starts to get a little warmer for us.

Anyways, too much waffle .....

Yup, it's Saturday again so it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss where this week we want to see all your creations "For Your Men".  Our sponsor for this week is Heather's Hobbie Haven and there is £10 up for grabs to spend on their on line store.

So what are you waiting for - I can't wait to see all your creations over at Totally Gorjuss and don't forget to check out what the fantastic DT ladies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the full card:

The recipe for the card is:

Digital Stamp:  Mo Manning - The Tramp

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / N0 (shading)
Jacket and Trousers:  N8 N7 N6 N5 N4
Hat:  N8 N7 N6 N5 N4 / E53 E51 E50
Waistcoat:  T9
Shoes and hair:  T7 T5 T3
Cane:  E34 E31
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

The image has been outlined with Weathered Wood Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Black Soot Distress Ink

I also used some Black Soot Distress Ink around all the inside edges of the card

And there you have it.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

So pretty; what work colour this image only with those colours and also to be a masculine card; ufff.....this is so much for me!; I have made only one card for a boy (addult) since I´m with scrap (no long time); is so difficult for me make a card without ribbon, flowers........

Absolutely fabulous Hazel :)

It's such a perfect image for a gentleman of a certain age.
And the simplicity of the layout adds to make the card very striking.
I think this has to be my all time favourite 'male' card.

Big hugs

WOW am I impressed. . . Your coloring is way over the top beautiful! Adorable design.

Kelly L said...

wow, how much your weather sounds like ours lately - freezing cold, then a little warmer with rain or sleet and rain, then a dusting to an inch or two of snow, and then the sun shine takes away the dusting of snow. It's been such an odd winter.

Well, your fella sure looks very dapper in his black suit. Your coloring skills are always are superb. I just love to look through your blog and hope and pray my coloring and shading is getting better with every card. :) Hugs, Kelly
