Our challenge for you this week, is to create a card
FOR A MAN/BoyJoining us this week are two sponsors ... the outrageously cute Di's Digi Downloads, who offers one winner a $10 store credit, and the wonderful Stamp Art Design by Kathryne! The winner's prize purse is their choice of 3 images of their choice! Kathryne has been an enthusiastic and generous sponsor, and we've been excited to have her. In addition, our sponsor also provides each of our Top 3 with an image of their choice too!
I started with my beautiful eagle image from Stamp Art Design by Kathryne and colored it with various shades of brown and gray Copic markers. It worked up surprisingly quick. I simply made v shaped strokes along the feathers using the different browns, then emphasized the white areas with the C00 and C1 grays. Isn't it beautiful? The details on this image are stunning! After coloring, I cut out the image using one of my circular Spellbinder dies. I inked around the circle using Colorbox brown ink. I typed and printed my Bible verse on my computer, cut it into a square shape and inked around the edges then matted it with black card.
I used a white 5.5x5.5" card base and layered solid brown card on top. I then cut the DP (from Basic Gray 6x6" pad called Little Black Dress), matted it on black and started building my layers from there. The corner piece was cut using my SU punch and is the reverse side of the plaid piece from Basic Gray. To finish it off, I added three silver beads to the lower right corner.
I hope I've inspired you to have a go at our male card challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle. We'd love to see what you come up with for the male in your life.
