For the Boys

Good morning.  Half way through June,where has the month gone?

We start a brand new challenge at Get Creative today with a theme of 'For the Boys/Fathers Day'

Our Sponsor is

My Shopping List
c5 white card blank
black card
white card
tonic nuvo pearl drops
texture embossing folder
chameleon pens

Quite a simple layout for this card but I did have a play in serif craft artist.

I took my image into serif and the cut out studio, removed the white from boys gown to make it a png image then I placed some black material behind it.  I then printed it out onto copic X-press smooth card and coloured the rest of him using chameleon pens.

I then cut a piece of black card followed by a mat of white card.  I embossed the white card and layered those two onto my card blank.

Using Brother Brian my snc, I cut three pieces of card, 2 black and 1 white from one of the oval shapes in the machine. I sized these to go down in 1cm increments.  I then printed out my congratulations using an alphabet from serif, scanned that into Brian and cut that out. I have embossed the smaller of the black oval shapes using a wood effect embossing folder.

I assembled my card and finished off by putting some pearl drops on using tonic nuvo pearl drops in black - a definite winner with me.
