Good morning everyone - have you got your wellies and sou'westers ready for the onslaught of rain that is expected? Evidently we are going to get a month's worth of rain in the next five days lol!!! I bet everyone who has a hosepipe ban are gnashing their teeth now!! We had a hosepipe ban in the northwest a couple of years ago and from the day it started it did nothing but rain.
Well today's card was really meant for yesterday as it was St George's Day but silly me forgot!!
Oh well better late than never I suppose! The image is a digi from Pink Gem and I have coloured him with Copics, Prisma Pencils and a touch of White Opaque Pen. The papers are the new set from Nitwits and will be really handy with it being the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics this year!! For the card I followed Dawny's sketch on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and also the sketch on A Gem of a Challenge. I have added Glossy Accents to his glasses, eyes and nose but I don't really think you can pick that up from this picture. I have used Spellbinders to cut the image out and mat it and Spellbinders Star Circles for the Sentiment mat which is computer generated. The stars from the sentiment mat I have stuck on the image as there are stars actually on the image. The pennants are Dienamics and gems, ribbon and twine are from my stash. I thought it would be ok for a man even though it has ribbon and gems on (ok maybe a man in touch with his feminine side then). I would like to enter in the following challenges:
