A late post for me today ! I've been busy, busy all day and decided to spend the evening crafting away seeing as I have some new goodies to play with !
I had a fantastic time on Saturday at the NEC and met lots and lots of fabulous crafting buddies, some new ones and some old ones but we had so much fun ! I do have a photo of some of us but its sooo dark. I'll see if one of the others has a better copy !
Well, I've been playing with some Tickled Pink digital images I bought last week and I've been itching to use them. Tickled Pink Challenges has a challenge "One For The Lads" running at the moment so I thought I would print this handsome chappy off and combine it with making a birthday card which is needed in a couple of weeks.
The DP's are Basic Grey "Eerie" which have been manhandled and dabbed with a gold marker pen.
The Tickled Pink digi is "Pirate Frankie" and he has been coloured with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics.
The background map stamp is an old stamp I bought ages ago from e-bay. The stamp says its made by Creative Stamping. This was stamped with distress ink and then had the full works with ripping, the distresser and loads of distress ink !
A bit of corrugated card which was treated in the same way as the papers and a piece of that cream lace stuff everyone was using a while back with the fancy bits cut off the sides to make it look more manly and then the same treatment again as the papers !
The "treasure" I found at the NEC ! The sentiment is part of a Tim Holtz stamp which has been stamped onto sticky back canvas (my new love !), edges frayed and scrunched up and distress inked !
Great fun was had making this card I can tell you !!
So, I am entering this card into these challenges :
Ticked Pink Challenges - One For the Lads
Sisterhood of Crafters - Let's Hear It For The Boys !
Stampavie and More - For a Boy
Stampin B's Challenge - Make a Masculine Card
