It's another Cards For Men challenge!! Whoo Hoo! This week, our sponsor is the very talented illustrator, Claire of Hope Jacare .
She has given the DT the choice of her images from her shop, or if preferred, this FREE image, to create something 'Outdoors'. Please feel free to take it. You may of course use any of your own images, but why not use this fab freebie!!
(If you do use this image, please remember to credit it to Hope Jacare).
Here is a little background info on Claire.......
"I'm a SAHM with three young children. I trained in Textile Design at the Glasgw School of Art and I love all things handmade, but especially papercrafts. I love to doodle ... and my doodles are available to purchase as digital images through Shop Handmade."
I chose to use the free image 'coz I thought I could experiment with colours and here's my take on it..........
I coloured this gorgeous image with Copics, wanting an irridescent look. Not sure I managed it, but I'll keep trying. (I think I should have sprayed it with some glimmer mist maybe)? I'll give that go and see how it turns out!
I wanted to use page pebbles for the bubbles, but I can't find 'em in this doss house of a craft room! (I really MUST pull my finger out and get it sorted). Instead, I used a strip of 'gems' I DID find. Shhhh!
The DP paper is from a pack from 'Paper Potpourri', by Doodlebug Designs. (Thank you Kathy)!
It's fabulous paper and the pack contains six different stunning designs.
The DP behind it, is from Nana's Nursery, by DCWV. The base card is Kraft. LOVE that stuff!!
Please head on over to the Cards For Men blog to see what the other Fabulous DT members have created for you. They are amazing! .......
Please forgive me if I didn't get round to commenting on your previous entry. It's been a time of lots of hospital appointments for tests and checks after the breast surgery. Thankfully, that's all done and dusted now. Just the radiotherapy and I'm all sorted! Whoo Hoo!!!
Thanks for calling by
