Eeeeek card for a bloke & Fankoo fankoo!


My friend Donna has a great challenge blog dedicated to cards for men which is something I run away from screaming usually! However times do call for me to make a bloke card (can you see me squirming!) Time to face the fears as its my OH's birthday today - Happy Birthday Boo!
Cards for Men want to see GREEN for their challenge which is one of my favourites to work with as I have a few shades to choose from. Flicking through my stash of digi stamps I settled on this one which is super dragon by Dustin Pike. OH likes flying things so made sense. Ummed and ahhhed over which shades of green to use, I didnt want it too kiddyish so steered away from the brighter green family and settled on one of my favourite combos of Lime zest, pear green, marsh green and moss. Used the brighter green on the spikes.
Background DP is a printout from designer extremes volume 3.
Entering this for
Quixotic - One for the boys


And also a HUGE HUGE FANKOO MUCHLY to Passion for Promarkers who have again awarded me their Top 3 blinkie for my Spring Challenge Card! Thats 3 times now and I'm really chuffed!

Hi Vix,

Great to see you joining in with us over at Cards For Men. Hope it's a regular stop.

Love the card, image and colouring. I've got loads of Dustin Pikes and to my shame, I don't think I've used any of them yet.

Take care,

Donna xx

Fabulous card Vix, Love that image and the colours are superb. Well done on getting the top 3 three times. Way to go. Must also say thanks for tutorials as after watching them purchased some PM's and did 2 cards which I was pleased with. Will work on the blending.
