Man At Work

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  My day started with a huge thunderstorm and pouring rain!  At least we didn't lose power like yesterday!  Anyway, I'm popping in to share a card I made for a few challenges.  It is for Card Patterns Sketch #168, Incy Wincy Designs (blue and black and a masculine sentiment), Love to Create Challenge #18 (Father's Day or card for special guy), Craft Your Passion Challenge #113 (use chevrons) and Tuesday Throwdown #100 (masculine).

Here is the CP sketch:


Here is my card:


I started with a card base of SU Basic Black and layered with blue and black chevron patterned paper from the Authentique Journey 6x6 pad.  I used another paper from the same pad for the half-circle at the top which I cut and matted using Spellbinders Grand Circle dies.  My masculine image is Man At Work from Just Inklined.  I printed it on Cryogen White and colored it with my Copics.  I sponged in a cloudy sky and added a few white highlights to the water with my Sharpie White Paint Pen.  The fun sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some Marina Mist ribbon and a few black buttons from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and hope you'll drop by again soon!
