It's A Mans World
This weeks challenge over at
is set but the lovely, well, Me hehe
Firstly I must apologise. I know we all hate doing mens cards but as it is my Dads birthday next week I had to do it (at least he's got a proper card off me this year lol).
Oh my did I have problems with this one. Got me image sorted (thanks to me mate with a debit card lol), picked out me papers and started on the colouring. I had decided (reluctantly) to do an A5 card (only because I had printed the image out sooo big lol). I found a sketch I was going to follow and this is where all my problems began.
The layout didn't go with the card. It was, for want of a better word, boring. No matter which way I turned the picture or elements of the sketch I really didn't like it (really really didn't like it). I couldn't see a way around it either.
So I went home, showered and went to bed. After work the next day I found myself just staring at it for ages (like it was going to make itself lol). I recalled a male card I had made a while ago where I had used circles within the layout so went from there. Cut a few circles out using the Cuttlebug then went to work on this new masterpiece of mine hehe.
I eventually came up with the card you see in the picture, and while I'm not 100% happy with the card, my Dad'll be pleased as punch, so that's good enough for me.
I used the new Basic Grey Oliver paper pad, Pink Petticoat Washed out plain paper, Spellbinders Small & Large Circles and both Copics & ProMarkers. I printed the sentiment out using Word and cut that out with Spellbinders Labels 2
I hope you like me creation and I wonder what you would of done with the layout lol.
Pop over to our other DT Gals blogs and have a peek at their fabby cards and i'll see you all next week.
