Lexi's Creations #41 - Father's Day

Hey everyone, this fortnight over at Lexi's Creations the new challenge is.. FATHER'S DAY. We want to see you celebrate the male figures in your life!!

Here is my take on the challenge..

I have used Squaddie Scruffles, isn't he perfect for Father's Day? So many of Lexi's images are perfect for a Father's Day card, including Golfer Max and Footie Ali!! Check out Fairy Dust Crafts and see which one is your fave. I have coloured Scruffles using ProMarkers - this is one of my fave colour combos for dark brown fur - Cocoa, Henna and Walnut.

I have cut him out using a labels four nestie and stamped the edges with various 7Gypsies stamps in SU! Crumb Cake ink. I then inked the edges with Frayed Burlap DI.

This fab and very hand ticket sentiment is from Stitchy Sentiments. I coloured around the outside with a green PM to coordinate with the rest of the topper.

The sponsor this fornight is Letraset..


..and the winner will recieve a pack of five ProMarkers.

I would like to enter this topper into these challenges:
× Charisma Cardz - Boy Oh Boy
× Aud Sentiments - A Sentiment/ Card for a Male
× My Time To Craft - Use a Die Cut
× Party Time Tuesdays - Animal Themed

Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to check out Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the DT have come up with for Father's Day. xo Lou.
