More male cards

Now, I really like making male cards, honest I do... but I've made so many lately I'm getting flower withdrawal symptoms - I've got a new flower punch that I'm desperate to use, but I'm going to have to wait a while yet. Sigh. The first card is one that hubby asked me to make for his grandad for his name's day (a Polish thing) and it was made in a big hurry this morning before we went to visit Pav's family. So it's not the most interesting card lol - I do quite like it though. I've used a Jim image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers. The fab grassy paper is Doodlebug, with some bright green cardstock and jute ribbon from my stash.

Promarker colours used:

  • skin - ivory, blush, oatmeal + sunkissed pink for cheeks
  • hair - warm grey 2
  • top - meadow green & apple
  • hat & trousers - pastel beige & sandstone
  • lawnmower - leaf green & bright green, cool grey 3 & 4 + ice grey 1 (wheels)
  • grass - meadow green & grey green
  • outline - pastel green + blender

This card is another father's day one for an order. Mikey monkey images from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers - 2 different Mikey images used, printed one out smaller and popped it up on foam pads, for a sort of 'father & son' monkey type thing lol. I can never remember if these papers are Papermania or Dovecraft, but they're very handy for male cards. Cardstock is coredinations, sentiment is a Pink Petticoat digi, finished off with some card candy. Made this one before I started writing all the promarker colours down, so no list for this one!

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
