Card for BIL



Hi Everyone

I thought I would pop by today & show you the card I made for my BIL. I have to say I was quite happy when I had about 10 Promarkers but it is amazing how much difference it makes having a larger selection. I have never really tried to colour what I class as a "complicated" image. But I decided to take the plunge & found the easiest way is to start with a small area at a time. I hope you like the way my card has turned out.

I started by printing off 2 of the images. I coloured one of them & used the other to test colours to see which were best. I then cut out the practise image & used it to cover my finished image. I then applied the Distress Ink background. I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple with it being a male card. xx Clare x
