Will try to alter these pictures later tonight to get the whole card in! if I can work out how!!

I actually did it.

It’s a Boy Thing………….

Dream Machines. My colleague at work was 21 today and he has a thing for cars. So on Saturday I said to him ‘if money was no object what car would you have? He said a Pagani Huayra. I’d never even heard of it let alone seen one. So after a bit of research I found a picture and set about copying it and this is what I came up with.

jan 11 001The card was based on an easel card.  I drew it out  and coloured it with copics. The bottom part of the car was just black in the picture so I had to do a bit of guess work in that area.

jan 11 003On the whole I was pleased with the result and the recipient was also impressed. Even another of my male colleagues recognized  the car straight away so that was a bonus.

jan 11 004Something completely different for me to attempt so I might even have a go at making some more when the dreaded male birthdays come round.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bad Blogger

Hi. Apologies for the extreme lack of posts lately, but I’m back and will try to keep it up. I have been taking lots of pictures with what I’ve been up to so so I can’t use that as an excuse! 

Tonight I’ll start with the challenge that is currently running on Scrapbook Sisters website ‘Add a little friend’. I thought I would do something a little different so this what I came up with.

jan 11 084I used one of my Digi Mask stamps which are available at Scrapbook Sisters coloured it with Copics, cut it out and added some ribbon. I traced the leaves to add a border down the side of the card and coloured in grey tones.

jan 11 086The ‘ little friend’ is a Ladybird made from half a red wooden bead with black enamel dots and little wire antennae. The pictures are a bit on the dark side as I took them in the morning before I went to work so the light was rather poor.

Tomorrow I will share a card I have just finished for a work colleague. Hes 21 tomorrow. Oh to be that age again. I am really pleased with how it came out – all will be revealed tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by
