My Guy Ian

Hello my friend! It's already mid week, and I am so behind in challenges :) There are quite some interesting sketches and challenges this week, but I only managed my first card of the week! Booo!

So this is a short post today, maybe at least I get to colour another image today! :) hint hint.. a little girl in Kimono.. does that tell you something.. who is she?? :)

But today I ahve a guy for you, exactly My Guy Ian, from the latest Club Anya release; by the Greeting Farm. Boy.. this set has made boy cards almost fun to do.. if at least I had more choice in embellishments that are good for such boyish cards!! Sigh.. But buttons, sack fibre and dewdrops do the trick everytime! I used Stamp with Fun sketch this time :)

I coloured the image with my Copics, and matted images and panel after I distressed all edges.

I used Weathered Wood and Frayed Burlap for the "dirty look" around the edges, and Aged Mahogany for the reddish edges. Papers are from Cupcake from Basic Grey. They are bright, fun and can be also adapted for boyish cards, as you can see. I find these very handy for the parties the kids get invited to, from their classroom peers. Round sentiment is Stampin 'Up, and the one on the image is partly from the My Guy Ian set, and the "l8er" is one I did with rub-on alphabet.

Self adhesive ribbon and buttons from my stash. Dewdrops are from Roses on Paper, as are the Papers, Distress Inks and Memento Ink. If you like The Greeting Farm stamps, Summer is one of the online stores that has them flying to your home anytime!

Have a happy rest of the week, and I hope to come here again soon :))

Thanks for looking

Hi Rosette
A stunning card - your colouring of the image is perfection, and I love those BG papers. Male cards can be quite difficult to design, but this is fabulous.
