Lexi’s Creations 92 Father’s Day or Special Male Birthday

I am so sorry I am two days late with this. I got my dates muddled up and forgot.

Our challenge at Lexi’s Creations this fortnight is Father’s Day or a special male birthday. You can produce anything you like, it doesn’t have to be a card, as long as it fits the theme.

My card was created for a special friend and as soon as I saw the Mo Manning image Johann I thought of my friend, as apart from a straggly beard, which I coloured in, it looked very like him!

Lexi 92

I don’t remember where my stripey paper comes from, as it was just loose in a box of odds and sods. The separate panel to the left of the image though is a piece of plain white cardstock run through an embossalicious folder, whichI had pre-inked with green and then I went over the areas raised by the embossing with orange DI.

I made the piece behind Johann with various DIs and an inkduster. Johann is coloured in with my promarkers. The guitar is a keyring, which was loosely attached so it could be removed for a small gift.

I had a different idea in mind before I ended up with this, and I am still not sure which one I like best



What do you think? I did eventually end up with the one on the easel at the top of this post.
