Card for TWO challenges

Hi from me again! :)

I have been a bit cheeky again and combined 2 challenges in one card:
Stampin' For The Weekend - sketch
Phindy's Place - Recipe: 3-2-1

It's a simple recipe but I messed it up anyway - my idea was to use 3 designer papers, two types of embellies and one image. Now that I'm looking at it I actually used 4 papers - pretend you don't notice, OK?!

The image is one of Phindy's teens and I think he looks totally cool! It's actually a get well card that hasn't reached the destination yet but I'm pretty sure the lad who's gonna get it is NOT among regular readers of my blog!! lol

The papers are from Basic Grey Oliver collection.

The image is coloured with Copic markers. I have been experimenting with creating folds and texture of clothing. If I have failed miserably, don't tell me, OK! lol I spent AGES colouring his trousers alone!

Copic colours I used:
Skin: E02/01/000/11/13
Hair: E49/47/37//27/42
Top: C5/3/1/00, 0
Trousers:YG91/93/95/97/99, BG93, T7/5/3/1/00
Bag: Y28/26/23/38, E08, W7/5/3
Shoes: E79/77/74/71/70
Shadow: W9/7/5/3/1/0

I would love to enter following challenges:
Paper Play - Circles
Stamp Insanity - punches 
Creative Cottage (2 weeks) - embossing 
Meljens - 3 different shapes 
Creative Card Crew (2 weeks) - punches 
Paper Take Weekly - for boys / men
Cards For Men (2 weeks) - MASCULINE and anything goes
Aly's Sunday Challenge (2 weeks) - distressed 
Paper Sundaes (3 entries) - for a boy or man 

Thanks for looking!

Very nice & so, so creative! I like the butterflies which I always think of as 'girly' but combining them with the screw heads is brilliant & makes them seem like 'boy butterflies'. Your colouring is amazing & you have such an eye for combinin colours with your papers.

Failed! Are you kidding? The coloring is incredible, and not just on his trousers. You even shaded his eyelid! My first set of Copics should be here any day now. Boy have I got some learning to do. :) Awesome Annika!

Cec said...

Fabulous card for a guy. I am sorry but I don't see 4 papers. I was positive the blue was textured card stock and not a designer paper :) Your colouring is phenomenal and I love the layout. Sure wish I could find those brads but then the lock has been placed back on the VISA so I guess I won't be looking too hard.

Anne said...

OMG the colouring on his jeans is amazing Annika, just perfect. I'm not very good at counting, so I make it 3 DPs LOL!
