A change from cute!



Now I must admit, I quite enjoy making male cards. But an order for a shooting themed card did throw me slightly! Luckily my lovely friend Sarah sent me some images to use, and hopefully my card will be ok!

I've coloured the image (don't know the make sorry) with promarkers, following the tutorial at Passion For Promarkers for sepia tones as I've never done this before - I thought it might suit the image. The gingham paper is a Funky Fairy download, corrugated card is from a local craft shop, brown cardstock is coredinations. Ribbon & button from my stash and computer generated sentiment (scriptina font).

Dex is having his afternoon nap, so really I should be up in the craft room getting another ordered card done. But I have the worst cold, I'm all shivery and sneezing constantly :o( So I'm going to curl up with a warm drink and Papercraft Inspirations mag that the postie just brought... can you believe he was wearing shorts and it's SNOWING! Hopefully I'll feel a bit better this evening so I can get some stuff done then.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Great card Lisa, I really like the effect. I think we get caught up in the cutsie too much (I'm guilty). I think your take on this card with the sepia tones is great and I am sure the receiver will really appreciate it.
