It's a Manly Thing!


Today we have a “Manly” challenge for you -> This one is for the Boys!!!

For this one I used the totally hilarious Gus Fishing …….. you can find Gus HERE

I got the inspiration for the layout from the Ala Card Monkey Challenge Blog & the tag panel from a challenge over at The Paper Players Blog

I stamped Gus using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Gina K paper, then I colored him in with my Copics (sorry no list today). I used Bazzill cardstock for the card base and then used 2 papers from the Renaissance Faire Collection from Graphic 45 (yes this paper line works for men as well as ladies). I then added a strip of drywall tape J and added a small wooden ruler I picked up at a LSS. I then cut my image panel into the shape of a tag, punched a hole using mu Crop-a-dile and then added some thick thread that I picked up at an Antique store.

Check out the wonderful creations that the
have in store for you


Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all have a wonderful week,


Jessie
