For the men out there....

Hello everyone, me again :)

I'm here with my mid challenge inspiration for the Aud Sentiments Challenge blog and this times theme is - 'any sentiment other than Birthday'! 

I chose to make a something more aimed at men this time rather than my last few pearly and sparkly designs! It made a change not to be distroying a necklace or two to add sparkle!

The sponser for this times challenge is Stamp Art Design by Kathryne and you can check out the designs at Whimsy Stamps.

The image I have chosed to used is Charlie sitting on a rock and I have coloured him with my Graph'it Marker Pens

The colours I have used are:
Skin: 4125, 4115, 4155, 3110, 4145, 4135
Hair: 3150, 3190, 4170
Clothes: 9505, 9100, 9102, 9103, 1210, 1230, 3130
Scene: 8220, 8250, 8270, 9500, 9502, 9505, 9102, 9103

I added momento ink (toffee crunch) to the edges of the image and distressed the edge with the edges of my scissors (proper tool is in my wish list lol).

As you can see I then matted him onto several layers of paper (all distressed at the egdes) including one I stamped with a leaf stamp from my stash and a layer of natural fibre sacking (garden centres are a great source of cheap alternatives for crafting!).

The sentiment added is simpe - Gone Fishing, and comes with the digital download of Charlie fishing on a rock!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you will join us at the Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog for this times challenge :)

Happy Crafting!
