Cards for Men' card first thing on Monday morning. I know I should schedule it to make sure but I never get round to it. This week I woke up on Monday Morning at the usual 6am (or should I say the kids woke up at their usual 6 am) but I just felt rotten. All day yesterday I was sick and in bed, got up today and I'm fine - just a bit washed out. So there we have it my reason for the late post but hopefully it was worth the wait.
The challenge this time over at Cards for Men is 'Embossing' and we have a fab new sponsor 'Paper Pretties'. If you haven't been before please take a trip over to their site. If you have you'll already know how fab they are. You can find all the details of the challenge, the sponsor and their wonderful prize over at the main site.
We were lucky enough to get images from Paper Pretties and the one I chose is called Desmond Donkey. I loved it as soon as I saw him and it really was a dream to colour. He's coloured using my promarkers. The sentiment was created on the computer and both are mounted onto some Basic Grey DP.
For the background I used a sheet of brown cardstock and stamped all over with a Papermania Cupcakes stamp that came free with a Creativity mag. Then I sprinkled some sparkly embossing powder over and had a go at heat embossing. It wasn't overly successful but not bad for a first attempt. It's also upside down, lol.
