Top Tip Tuesday #48 Masculine Creations

Morning all, well another week has flown by, the kids will be back at school before we know it! I know I was saying a couple of weeks back roll on back to school, but i'm kinda sad now that its so close! Went out last week and brought Amelias 1st pair of school shoes, cant believe it has come round so fast! 

Yesterday was my 25th birthday! had a rather quiet day, but enjoyed it, had to pack and make sure all the housework was up to date as we are going on holiday - only to the south coast for a few days but man am i looking forward to it!

Well i'm here to share with you the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday this week, we are looking for

Masculine Creations

Well I know how I struggle with creations for my husband, dad, father-in-law ect. so this week challenged me a bit more!  there is only so much decoupage I can bare to look at and do, let alone keep sending it to people year after year! 

So I decided to purchase a few 'male' digis and see how I got on. 

Well I was very impressed with ones self when I looked at it all together.... The digi is from Tickled Pink Stamps, I have quite a few of them now and have never really coloured many up till now... Been on a mission of colouring, now one must create ore and more! 

This is Luca, he can be found on the Tickled Pink Shop Here.  I was so worried about colouring him, but he was easier than I thought... OK so I was relying on the fab new fine tips for my pro-markers to help me out, but they did the job!  I coloured him using Warm Grey 4 and 5, Blush, Ice Grey 1 and Poppy to colour him in.  I cut him out and mounted him onto some red bazzil from my stash.  

The backing paper is one that I found on the internet, I just did a google search for free playing card DP and saw this one, I printed it onto a4 paper and the mounted it onto white card.  The sentiment i just typed on my computer, played with the font printed and cut it, then mounted it onto red bazzill again! 

The small playing cards in the top right corner are from Printable Heaven, they have some fab papers over there and they are not too expensive either! 

Well I hope you like what I have created and that you will join in with us this week at Top Tip Tuesday! Please hop over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT have created and if you have time please show them a bit of love and leave a comment, we all love to read what you think!
