Stamp'N'Doodle Male Themed Challenge

Hello my lovely followers, i know its been weeks since i have blogged, but after a surprise rush to hospital and 4 day stay 3wks ago, I've not been able to sit comfortably for long periods, so blogging and even crafting has been out of the question. I finally managed to make a card on Saturday for my hubby from the furbabies for fathers day, and yesterday i made my DT card for this weeks Stamp'n'Doodle challenge.

The challenge this week is to make a Male themed card with NO FLOWERS, male colours, male embellies, male colours etc. We were given the 'Fathers Love' image to play with, its s lovely image and real fun. I decided to work with the colours red, blue and olive green. i used 3 different textures of backing card and covered a square card with the olive green card, cut a oblong of handmade dark blue paper and layered it at an angle and used 2 thinner oblongs of red card top and bottom.
The image is coloured with pro markers and stuck on at an angle with foam pads. I added 3 different sizes of buttons in green, blue and red to the bottom corner and a fishing sentiment square in the top corner. i then used a piece of course string and let it wind around the image and stuck it down in places so it still has movement.

I hope that you will come along and join us in our Male Themed challenge here .
