Mad as a Hatter!

Just popping back with a second card I've made...this time using the fab Mad Hatter image from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil.

This time I coloured him with my Promarkers. I love colouring and can't get enough of tutorials, etc, no matter what brand of pen they are using! I'm addicted!!
Anyhoo...I tried...really hard...LOL! to create a man's card using shades of greys, blues and oranges and very little in the way of embellishments. The papers were from the 'Swagger' pad by Fancy Pants and I punched a border directly into the papers using a zig zag punch from XCut. The sentiment is another Craftwork Cards little circle and the two pearls were coloured with my markers to match in.

Hope you like it - this is such a fun image that is bound to bring a smile to whoever you send it to, no matter what the colour scheme! I'd like to enter the card in the following challenges:
Graph It - Anything Goes
Gem of a Challenge - One for the Boys
I love Promarkers - For the Boys
Simon Says Wed Challenge - Let's Have a Laugh
The Paper Shelter - Digi and a Sentiment

Best wishes and bye for now

  1. This is fabulous! What a great Mo Manning image, too! Love your coloring and the way you kept this card simple since the image is over-powering and adding more "stuff" would only gunk it up (those are technical words). The colors are great, the papers are perfect and I love the scallop edge of the card. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter this week and hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Gail
