I have been doing Shannon's bedroom this week, and have now filled all the holes and repaired the walls where the shelves had been. Sanded them down and will now be making a start on the white work (base boards, window frames and doors) I hate this part :-) I will possibly be able to start the walls themselves next week, will have to prime the upper half first and then start painting. So it's coming along.
Anyways, here we are, the beginning of another challenge at Polka Doodles and this week we are focusing on the men or boys in our lives. You know the ones we all have trouble with, when it comes to making them something. So the theme is One For the Boys.
Here is my little bit of inspiration for you this week.
I like the clean lines of this one - nothing frilly but I did add that little bit of Twinery Twine, the colour is Shore, which I won as blog candy back in June from Great Impression Stamps - thank you :-)
My image is from the Polka Doodles Candy Doodles CD and I coloured him up with pencils and Gamsol. Just fancied a change of medium :-) I did edge him with Spectrum Noir BT1.
Both my papers and sentiment were from the Polka Doodles Sugar Birdies CD. I printed one sheet double-sided in order to do the faux frame in the middle. My card is 5.5" square, I inked all the edges of all the layers. The image and sentiment are up on pop dots for added dimension.
For the inside I have used the same papers as the front, inking the edges, adding a white centre for writing on and adding those little stars to finish off.
