Anything Goes # 87 - Very Manly (Boys/Men)

Good morning Blogger friends...

It's time for another challenge over at Anything Goes and this fortnight our theme is "Very Manly", so we want to see your cards for men or boys.

I've chosen a couple of digi images from Make It Crafty, they are Flying Balloon Contraption and Annabelle.
This has to be my most ambitious colouring so far. They've both been coloured with Copics and I'm really pleased with the outcome. I lost count of how long they took me to colour, but it must be over 3 hours!

Copics Used:

Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R30
Greens: YG99, YG95, YG93, C7
Smoke: C3, C1, C0, C00
Browns: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Yellows: Y38, Y35, Y21, Y00
Greys: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C0
Reds: R59, R29, R27, R24, R22
Hair: E99, E97, E51, E50, E59
Clouds/Sky: BG000, B91, C1, C0, C00


The sprockets have been cut using Spellbinders 'Sprightly Sprockets' and the tags are 'Ribbon Tags Trio'.
The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley

I'm really pleased with how the card's turned out and my Hubby was so chuffed to receive it for his recent Birthday.

Hope you are able to join us this fortnight. Just think you could make a father's day card super early!
