Dream Valley 73 For a Boy/Man

Our challenge at Dream Valley this time is to create something for the boys or men in your life.

We are sponsored by Robyn’s Fetish with a prize of 3 digi stamps. Melly, the blog owner, is also running a DT call if any of you fancy it!

73 For a Boy or Man

For my male themed card I used a Mo Manning image, which I coloured with my copics and promarkers.

All of my papers are from Basic Grey, but I can’t remember which pad I pulled them out from. In fact I am sure it was more than one pad. The little charm was part of a Christmas gift and the buttons and mesh were in my stash.

I used some glaze on his goggles, but it’s not showing up well on the picture, and also a silver pigment ink pen on the metal parts of his clothes and goggles.
