Cute Card Thursday 'It's A Man's World' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'It's A Man's World', we would like you to make a card for the men or boys in your life. We have a fab Sugar Nellie monkey stamp up for grabs and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning it is to make a card and leave us a comment with a link to it.
I have used the super cute William Goblin for my card and papers from Basic Grey. I have stamped William and coloured him with Prismacolors and Sansador. I stamped the 2 toadstools and coloured them and then added Glossy Accents to make them nice and shiny, I put some brown ink on the green to try and darken it but it hadn't dried when I put the GA on so it ran but I really like the effect it gives. To finish the card I added 4 eyelets and some garden twine whilst praying that I got them in the right place so I didn't wreck the whole card!! I really must plan my cards more rather than adding things at the end (like the sentiment + eyelets) once it's all put together.

I think he's cute too. I always get nervous adding bits on at the end but sometimes I find you have no choice as I can't tell what needs adding till the end! Love the 'accident' looks like it was on purpose :)
