A Couple of Male Cards


I really enjoy making male cards- keeping them simple but trying to add interest through texture, rather than fuss- it suits my kind of style.

The first card uses one of my all time favourite images,  No. 1 Fan, coloured with promarkers. The papers are a mix of Bo Bunny Alora and Basic Grey Oliver, matted onto red paper.  I've used my favourite scrim, with layered paper on top, some corrugated card (previously a Starbucks wrap) and some punched stars.  I've added some rafia cross stitches too and some faux stitching around the circle.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch
 Karen's Doodles - Make it for a Male
Stampalot - Happy Birthday

The second card, uses the other halves of the papers, layered onto red paper.  I've coloured LOTV's Deckchair Dreaming with my polychromo pencils - pleased with the grass on this one!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Great Outdoors
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything Goes
Lili's Little Fairies - Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times - Cute 'n' Cuddly
