Cards 4 Guyz goes live

Good morning.
Today is the beginning of what I hope is a wonderful adventure, my first DT spot. 
Our first challenge over at Cards 4 Guyz is :-


This is my first effort for the team.

I seem to be on the CAS theme again but using a masculine stamp and aperture this time.
The image is from LOTV and I coloured it with Copics as follows:-

Hair- YR24 Y21 E41,43
T-shirt- BG10,13,15
Log- E41,43,44,47

The background paper is from NitWits (Just hatched - clouds), glued to the base card and the top layer is white card embossed with a polka dot embossing folder after cutting the aperture with a Sizzix hexagon die.
I then mounted the image and the embossed layer with pads onto the base card. I cut away the log from the main image and mounted it on pads on the polkadot card putting in a few squiggles to suggest water as the original ones were lost when I cut the log off.

Well I hope you enjoy your first challenge over at Cards 4 Guyz or go and visit us and enter if you haven't been already.

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-

Craft your passion - Cool Colours
Crazy Challenge - Cards for men
LOTV - Anything goes

Bye, but come back soon.
