G is for Games

Card makers often dread having to make cards for the male of the species. Add into the mix that the male concerned is a teenager and it’s doubly difficult. Mo Manning has some great digis which make this task a whole lot easier and when I saw this one of a boy intent on his games I knew exactly who it would be perfect for.

The main part of the image was coloured with denim & pear green Promarkers, the green chosen because it matches Lettuce Adirondack ink – one of the few Adirondacks I’ve got, and which I was using to make my own backing paper.
The backing paper was made by using my Inkylicious Ink Dusters with a combination of Denim & Lettuce Adirondacks then random stamping using Papertrey Ink game-themed stamps. I’m entering this into the “G is for . . ” challenge.
Finished card size: 15cm square

  1. Pretty cool card, Helen! Just perfect for a boy. And your own backing papers are really great.
    Thank you so much for joining us at Mo's Digital Pencil this week!
