1st GDT For HERE COME THE BOYS

Yep you read it right, I was asked a few weeks ago if I would like to be a Guest Design Team member at 

Here Come The Boys

and I jumped at the chance. I don't make many male cards and really enjoyed the challenge of making my GDT cards.

This weeks challenge is a

RECIPE

3 Papers
2 Brads or Buttons
1 Image

Here is what I came up with


I have quite a few fishing enthusiasts in my family so this will come in handy. For the 3 papers I used a plain pearlescent blue as the base paper, I embossed a more turquoise blue thin card for the 2nd layer and then used a scrap of patterned paper that I found lurking in my paper oddments file. I thought it fitted in well with it having wave like shapes on it.
I decided not to use normal buttons but to go for something a bit different and used these 2 buttons that you can thread ribbon through and i used a piece of twine through them, every fisherman has the odd bit of twine or string in their pockets don't they. Finally the image is coloured with promarkers.

I hope you will nip along to the blog here and join in this weeks challenge.

Happy Crafting
Kate
