One for the boys!

I hardly ever make any masculine cards - most of my male friends are not into the masculine stuff!

I chose this image from Delicious Doodles and discovered something wonderful....I didnt even need to colour it in!!!  I just looked at it and thought it looked quite brilliant as it was!

So - just added a few dirty smudges (yep and a fingerprint!) and it was just about done!



See?  Just doesnt need anything else!  Oh yes - there will be some wonderfully crafty types who will want to do more - but I just like it plain and simple...like my men!

Josh was very impressed with the fingerprint and wanted to do his....so we did and then made it into a spider!  He was so chuffed - its on our shelf now!  I just asked him what its name is and its.....HECTOR!

Thanks for stopping by!  Ooooo and check out the post below this for my stress reliever post!!!

Love that card - I've just done a similar thing (different image but uncoloured), so hand on heart I love it!!!! Also think the inky print is inspired.

The spider is awesome this would be a great 1/2 term boredom buster for my son, he could make Halloween party invites. x :)

I love the fingerprint idea, but I have to say that I would like a bit of red on the bike. But hey, that's just me. I love it just the same.

Hugs, Teresa xxx
