Taking it easy

Today's DT card is for both Cute Card Thursday and Lili's Little Fairies - CCT are creating for the men and boys whilst LLF have an anything goes challenge.  I've inked up the lazy days stamp with brown Momento and coloured with my Copics, mostly the E40 range with a touch of blue and green here and there.  I've inked the edges with a soft blue chalk ink as well as Sahara Sand and Jumbo Java Versamagic chalk inks on the edge of the image, papers and embellishments.

Here's the card, looking very washed out as I've still not figured out how to brighten things up. The background is a piece of digi paper from my stash matted with kraft cardstock and then onto a cream base card.  I've diecut the embellishments  from scraps of kraft and blue card, but kept it reasonably simple as it's a man card! Apart from the corners (old squeeze die) the rest are all Marianne: ivy spray, bird and bird box LR0206, swirls cut from LR0157, and flowers from LR0142.

I'm not sure if there are any challenges about for male cards this week .. .. I'll try and browse and maybe come back to link up - please let me know if you find any!

I found one, the Fab'n'Funky challenge for male creation.

  7. Super with the ivy leaves & the little bird & his house. Love the way that ivy continues the twig hanging over his head. This is gorgeously soft & I like the contrast of the blue flowers.
