One For The Boys

Hello fellow bloggers.

I hope today sees you all fit and well. My prayers go out to my fellow Queenslander's who may be affected by the flooding - be safe.

I wanted to share a quick card with you today. I have been practicing with my copics - I find colouring hard to do, does anyone else have that problem?

Anyway, here is my card.


I embossed the cardstock with Tim Holtz's brick folder after painting it with silver crackle paint. This didn't work as well as I hoped (most of the paint just squeezed out), but it did give it a very light shine - did not photograph well.

I also found a really old label maker when I was cleaning up and used that to make my sentiment.

Enjoy your day.

your colouring is great, perfect colour choice!! the only way to feel better about colouring is to practice in your spare time, I know you have heaps of that-lol!! what a neat way to use the OLD labeller! :)

Love those old labelers and it's so perfect for this card. I too struggle with colouring. Every once in a while I feel like I've gotten it right and I'm so excited but for the most part it's a struggle. I think Sue is right and it takes more practice than I have time for!

The brick wall is so grungy! Perfect for a boy! The robot is coloured excellently, I don't know what you're talking about :)

wow I really like this!! I'd love to try that brick background wiht red crackle paint too!
I love that robot, I have to get that stamp!

good job on the colouring I think, doing the one colour like you've done here (all greys/silvers) is quite hard isn't it!
