Valentine for My Dude?
It's my wedding anniversary next week. 3 years. Second time around, for me. The challenge over at Dude Time Doodles meant I could kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Make him a card and follow their sketch. It wouldn't be me to make him a mushy card. He'd think something was wrong with me. This image from Bonibleaux Designs fits the bill to a tee. He supports Hearts Football Club here in Scotland and their colours are maroon and silver grey. If the light here were better you'd see this was made in those colours. I hate this time of year for the light. Hopefully when the birthday fairy comes visiting, I might get a lamp that mimics daylight. I can dream can't I? Ooops off subject!! But you get the idea, hopefully.
The papers are from the mans range from Papermania from last year in the maroon and some silver grey plain paper from stash. Layered onto some maroon then onto some matt silver CS for a base. The heart shaped brads were green. I sanded that colour off to leave the silver base colour showing through.
The image was coloured with promarkers with a touch of DI round the edges.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Dude Time Doodles - Their Sketch
