Card for a son-in-law
My Mother-in-Law is fantastic at selling my cards at her Age Concern coffee mornings and brings me home orders for cards. Now, if I can then enter some of these into Challenges then that's great. On this occasion the lady requested African animals since she'd seen a similar one I'd made.
For this card I followed the sketch on Papertakes challenge which required just 3 of anything!
One elephant has been coloured with Promarkers but the layered one is actually coloured with Inktense pencils because I stamped it with Versafine instead of Momento. I suppose it would have been easier to stamp it again but it was an excuse to dust off my pencils which had got buried under various other bits and pieces.
Materials - DCWV papers, Joanna Sheen's Jane Netley Meyhew's elephant stamp, Promarkers, Derwent Inktense pencils, nesties, and buttons from stash.
Challenges -I love Promarkers 57 ( mens card )
Paper Pretties PWC 145 ( masculine card )
Ooh-la-la-creations 75 ( it's a man thing )
Papertake ( 3 of anything )
