Now onto some craft. My son asked for a couple of thankyou cards for people he hasn't been able to see personally to thank and he didn't want girly ones either. It's hard to make a thankyou for a female when you are given the remit not girly as if he didn't like them he wouldn't send them so that would be a total waste of good craft supplies. Anyway they have both been given approval so all is ok.
I used one of my new stamps from Sugar Nellie sassy set 3 not sure what his real name is but I call him cool dude, that way I remember which they are. I made both cards with the same image but coloured differently but both with my wonderful Promarkers. I'm not saying Copics aren't wonderful but I don't have any so can't say before I get shouted at by all you Copics lovers, lol.
The first card I did in shades of grey and silver. I love how he turned out and how well he worked with the pearlised, matt and holographic mirri-cards. The liquid pearls I think are the perfect finishing touch and although I would say girly escaped un noticed, well my son is male afterall and we all know they have tunnel vision at times.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Passion for promarkers-anything goes
Crafty Ho's -picture inspiration
The Pixie cottage-layout
fun at fairy knoll-anything goes
My second card I used shades of green, have to say although I don't count green as a favourite colour I do have a soft spot for it, especially acid green and deep emerald/bottle green. I do tyhink this is a bit odd as I hated wearing it at school and it was our uniform colour, bottle green skirt and jumper or cardigan, white shirt and green and red striped tie, from infants to 5th year (not sure what grade that is but I think it's year 11) . Sixth form we got to wear navy blue and no tie for the girls, boys always wore black blazer and trousers and the same tie all way through to leaving sad really.
Well back to the card sorry, maybe I should resolve not to digress but can't see that lasting so I'll not bother.
I used cream base card and the same for my image, The paper was a scrap I found in a bag of bits and the corners are stickers from a magazine freebie. The strip is from me messing with some alcohol inks and although they aren't all green I thought the mix of colours worked quite well.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Papertake weekly-be thankful
ABC challenge-keep it simple
Cute card thursday-thankyou
Scrapbook sisters-it's a mans world(well it's for my son to send and his remit for the design)
