Lisa at Mess2Magic who mentioned some male challenges, and knowing I'd shown her these images a couple of weeks back, I didn't feel I had any excuse!
Soooooo let me introduce Murray.... (or at least his backside!) He's from a fabulous Murray and Ethel stamp sheet that I've had for ages, and even have had the images coloured for ages too. I used my prismacolour pencils (in my early stages of learning how to use them as you can probably tell)..... then used glossy accents on his glasses and the paper. I decoupaged him from the original layer, and also decoupaged in another layer his rather snazzy pants - so the 'crack' appears sooooooo real! The sentiment is on the stamp sheet, but I did it on the PC using a fab font called Pea Noodle Parlor (free from Kevin and Amanda Font Site). Some lovely fonts there to download, and i particularly loved this one. I used Bazzill dotty cardstock with a scrap of a blue stripey one that I don't know the name of. A MS punch went across the middle of the card, and then some little glossy beads (well, ok, some men like beads....) in the corner!
Right...... I better press 'publish' before I rattle on and on....
Hope you like my change of direction - do let me know!
