Prairie Fairy Challenge - Friday 16/7/10



Over at the Prairie Fairy Challenge this week the topic is "one for the boys".  I have a stall at the end of August so I thought I'd better get on and make some Christmas cards for it so I chose this little cat with the Christmas tree.  I have used the Serif Digital Scrapbooking package to make the background for the image to go on and added some chunky man-like thread and some man-like eyelets (rather than pretty girly ribbon etc) and a good selection of different types of buttons.  The image I have coloured in with Promarkers.  I made the two flowers out of remnants of paper using my Papermania flower template.  Both layers I scrunched up and the lighter blue I inked over with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the darker blue I inked over with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  The flowers are finished off with some pearlescent brads I was given.


This card also fits the following challenges:
