So for those of you who are my regular followers, you will know that DH is currently working away in Winnipeg. We have just had confirmation that his contract has been extended and he will now be there until at least the end of August :-( Told the girls on the weekend, they were a little upset, OK more than a little. So, the girls and I had a good old Mom and girls talk, cry and then group hug. We miss him so much, but he will be home at the end of each month for a long weekend.
Today, I thought I would share with you this lovely Emma Canning image, she is an exclusive designer to Polka Doodles and her digital images can be found in the Polka Doodles shop for download. She has lots of fabulous images. Also Polka Doodles is trying to branch out into the online digi download world and Nikky is constantly adding new things, from single images to digital bundles. So why not pop along and take a look see.
I don't know about you, but male cards are a pain in the behind. They just don't come naturally. I coloured this image with my Spectrum Noir markers and I have to say I am pleased with how he turned out. Perfect for a male teen.
My papers are from my stash and the sentiment is from When the Scrap Hits the Fun. I inked all the edges in black ink. Remind me not to do that again - it gets everywhere!
I popped up the image layer and the sentiment layer to give some dimension to the card. Also added some brads to that middle layer. See no frills!
I used some of the papers for the inside of my card. The little stamp is from the CTMH stamp set that came with the Art Philosophy bundle.
And there you have it - a male teen card! Yay!
