One for the men



This is my card for two challenges. Passion for ProMarkers blog challenge. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge and I Love ProMarkers challenge blog. This week's theme is Men's cards.

I begun by stamping the image with a black Memento ink pad. The image is 'Lazy Afternoon' by Lili of the Valley. I coloured the image in with ProMarkers. I used Nestabilities to cut out the image and the frame. I added green Stickles to the leaves.



I used a variety of brown patterned papers for the background panels. I mounted each panel onto a piece of Kraft card. I added a distressed look to the edges with Stampin' Up sponge dauber and Chocolate Chip and So Saffron ink pads.



I attached all the panels to a square card blank. I added faux stitching with brown and white pens. I used Stampin' Up photo corner and round tag punches to punch the corners from Kraft card. To finish the card I added buttons and a circle greeting from Craftwork Cards.
