Something manly...

The challenge at Kenny K-s Krafty Girlz is NOT Something Manly. It's a actually a lovely and very workable sketch by Bev.

And wait until you see the prize:
Now that would be a lovely bit of a crafty spending!!!

I guess I felt a bit "frilled out" so my card became quite pared down and therefore utterly masculine.
I used an image called Cheers Dude and a sentiment from Little Paper Shop.
The colouring is once again Copics and the papers are from Basic Grey.

Copic colours:
Skin: E000/00/21/11/13
Hair:E49/55/49
E18/17/15/13/11
Top, hat: YG99/63/91, BG96

Challenges:
Fairy Fun Fridays (2nd week) – happy birthday
Simply Create (2nd week) - use your punches
Anything Goes - Eyelets and Brads (in corners)
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Heavy Metal
Cards For Men (2 weeks) - MASCULINE and Let's Party

Thanks for looking!!
Hugs

very funny and fun for a guy card.

Chris said...

Hey Annika, this is kind of weird, I was checking some of the SFTW blogs before I started to post the 2 cards I made today. It's funny because I made a man's birthday card and a card featuring a laundry basket. What's your next card going to be? I have to check tomorrow, see if we're still on the same wavelength.

Cheryl said...

Wonderful! You are a genius at texture. I love the little safety pin you added too.

Anita said...

OMGosh, this is fantastic. Your coloring is perfect, as always. Love the "rugged" look of the papers you've used. And that sentiment is hilarious! Love it!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Thinking and praying for you my friend!
hugs,
Chris
