man of the match.

good evening all.i hope you are all well.am still having back pain and am going to the doctors on friday if it is no better as the pain is around my kidneys so think i better get it checked(by mums orders!!!).so enough of my waffle!!
tonights card is for my stepdad for fathers day and i am also entering this into this weeks
passion for promarkers=week 56= sketch plus a male theme.

so products used are black card.basic grey manilla paper.papermania black gems.flower soft image and sentiment coloured with promarkers and background chalked with grey chalk.cut out with circle nestie and mounted onto scallop circle.all over coated with distress paint rock candy and when dry i randomly sponged over some pumice stone distress ink.

promarker colours used are
ALL OVER= cool grey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

a close up with the flash so you can see the sparkle of the rock candy.

and a sideways view.i hope my stepdad likes it, i`m sure he will.i have also bought some of those little wallet cards with verses on to put inside as i don`t have a printer to do inserts and think they cost more than my card did to make.lol.
enjoy whats left of your evening and thankyou to all who checked out my tutorial over at crafty urchins.mwah.
luv coops.xxxxx
