Pollycraft Challenge #113

Good morning Pollycrafters. How've you all been?! Good weekend I hope?! I've been off work for three days, and I won't lie - it's felt lush. Just a shame I've got to go in and do a four hour shift later on this afternoon. *think of the money* HA! Anywho..

Today over at Pollycraft Challenges, guess who's set the challenge theme?! YEAH!! Only yours truely! ;) Like you need three guesses to guess what I set up?! A SKETCH!! Of course! ;)

Here is it. Apologies for the hideous colour combo - I just didn't want any confusion. Get me?! :)

The prize for this weeks winner is 10 POLLYCRAFT DIGIS!! I can't see why you'd need any more reason to join in, personally! ;)

So here's my take on my sketch. HA!

I had to use the handsome Casper Silvermist, because.. he's too handsome to leave behind. Truth is, I gotta pull my finger out and start making more male cards. It's not that I don't enjoy doing them, it's just.. it's a lot harder to 'jazz' up a male card as opposed to a female card which you could embellish til 'the cows turn blue' (which is a phrase I heard on Capital FM the other morning and nearly peed myself. Obviously the girl meant til 'the cows come home' - mortified!!).

Anyway, I've coloured Casper - what a dreamy name - using Copics and ProMarkers then fussy cut him out. I've paired him up with some of the blue and grey papers from MME Hattie collection. I've used both STD Circles LG and LG Pinking Circles to cut out my shapes and doodled most edges. I've stamped a sentiment from PTI Tiny Tags set in Chestnut Roan ink onto a small circle.

I think that just about covers it, oh and I also added some aqua bakers twine from The Ribbon Girl around the longest strip of patterned paper for an added something.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Here Come The Boys - Wheely Nice
I hope the wheels on his skateboard count, ladies?
× One Stitch at A Time - Use a Digi

× The Crafty Pad - One for the Boys
