Lets hear it for the boys

Good afternoon and happy halloween!   Today it is time for the boys as The poodles parlour's theme is  'Lets hear it for the boys' So here is one of my canvases for you to have a look at.  Hope you like it.

The canvas was painted white and inked around the edge before I started adding the papers, which are from Pink petticoat. I have then added a piece of colored hessian and ribbon before staring on the sentiment and image.

Canvas hanging on the wall side view

The image is a fabulous Kenny K digi called 'Cool trucker' These images are just brilliant when you enlarge them , this one has been printed out to nearly A4 size.  I have coloured the image with pro markers, cut it out and added it to my canvas using silicon gel.

The sentiment is from an inkadinkadoo clear stamp set and the panel is a free stamp that was in a magazine.  I have inked it, and again added it using silicon then added the buttons.

These buttons are from my stash. 

 I will be entering this project into the following challenges Lets hear it for the boys

New beginnings!

Another late post as I have just returned from spending the day with family at the holiday park they are staying in, I am exhausted I don't know how they do it for a week, as I can hardly keepmy eyes open!!  So I will edit this post tomorrow to check for bloopers, until then excuse the typing as my brain has ceased to function!

Another simples card, as there are no DP's just an embossed spotty panel on the left hand side of this Z fold card. I like this fold at the moment isn't it funny how we all go through fazes of what type of card we make?

Side/inside view

The image is a lili of the valley stamp 'called  'christening', and has been stamped onto a Nellie snellen die cut that has been inked and pearled.  I have then coloured it with pro markers.

The flower and swirls are marianne die cuts and have been embellished with pearl gems, and inked around the edges to help them coordinate with the card.

The charm is from my stash

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
