Creative Cottage Challenge - One for the Boys

Good morning and and how is your week going? hope you are all having a creative and productive week so far. The weather has improved albeit slightly, maybe Summer if finally on its way!

Well its another week at the Creative Cottage Challenge, and this week we have a fabulous challenge its - "One for the Boys". If you are like me, you struggle with male cards, so this is a chance for you to stretch yourselves.

I have used one of Tracy's fabulous digi download kits - Lets Celebrate. Which is available to buy here.

I have actually used one of the new Funky Kit Manga images for my card. I love this funky guitarist! I have coloured him (not very well !!) with my pro-markers.

Have layered up the papers and cut out my image and decoupaged him onto the firework background paper. Some glossy accents to his sunglasses to look like glass (double click onto the image to see closer).

Have added stickles to the fireworks and the addition of a Sizzix sentiment "You Rock!". Using my star nestabilities and a peel off stating "wish".

The inside decorated with the remainder of the gorgeous papers.

Another card made earlier this week with the same papers and image. Thought i would share again in case you missed it.

Hope you will join us with this weeks challenge, and look forward to visiting you and seeing your creations. Last weeks entries were fabulous as always!

Have a wonderful day, hugs Linda x
