Good morning faithful followers, tis I back again with another Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge.
This week our Anything Goes with a twist is all about “Boating”.
I thought this a perfect opportunity to make a man card with this challenge. I’m sure most of you’ll agree with the fact that man cards are really hard to do. I find them challenging because I look at them, and they look so empty because you can’t put on pretty flowers, bling, ribbons and the like. Heck, I didn’t even have anything in my stash remotely connected to a boat.
But there is an upside to this because I got to go shopping at one of my favourite digi stores, Mo’s Digital Pencil.
I have seen this particular Mo’s image from time to time on various blogs, and I pretty much knew that one day I would have it too. Now I do, and so can you too, (enabler alert, sorry) here.
If you remember my post last week I talked about a new 3D technique that I'd learned. Well, I gave it another go round and this time I did a few more areas. I love this technique, albeit it’s a wee bit more labour intensive. I have issues with my fine motor skills, and it takes me a bit longer with scissors, but I look at it like its physiotherapy J
Have a closer look…
I printed out the image onto Neenah cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers.
Boat: W00, 01, 03, 05, 07 and E31

The DP is from My Mind’s Eye, Miss Caroline collection.
I added a bit of ribbon, but my husband told me to nix the bow. Instead after hours of trying to think of and/or find something else to use as embellies, I came up with the idea of nautical knots, hence the three figure eight knots I made with a scrap piece of string.
The sentiment is computer generated and it’s a quote I had saved by someone I can’t remember. I thought it fitting for this particular image.
For a change I followed a legitimate sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and will be entering my card over there.
So that's it for me, I hope to see you over at the Outlawz and once again thank you for taking the time to stop by. Again, thank you so much for all of your very kind comments, I do so enjoy reading them . Cheers :)S
