You could use the colours as inspiration, or there's a "planes, trains and auto-mobiles theme to all the photos, there's that sexy lady on the Memphis Belle or perhaps the pictures evoke a memory for you.... however you choose to interpret it, as long as it's for a guy (young or old) and we can see how our picture has inspired you, you're in! I've gone down the "planes" route :) Here's my card...
The cuter than cute digi is from Di's Digi Designs. I coloured using Copics, I tried to give a mottled finish to Ted to look like fur. In the "original" image Ted is holding a bunch of flowers, as you can see in this picture. I drew a bunch of balloons using Word, printed them out, coloured them, added Gloss then cut them out and glued them over the flowers to make it a tad more masculine. Stampin' for the Weekend has For a Child and Stamping Sensations has Great Outdoors so I'm entering there too.
The papers are from Kaisercrafts Rewind pad and my stash. I cut the image panel and blue mat with Nestabilities Standard Circles, then mounted them on a silver mat made with a Nestabilities Lacey Circles die. The biggest mat I cut freehand then embossed with Cuttlebug's Divine Swirls folder, which is the first embossing folder I ever bought :) I added buttons also from my ancient stash ;) Totally Gorjuss has Something Old as their theme so I'm entering there.
I used my paper piercer and a silver gel pen to do the faux stitching, Whimsy Inspirations Challenge's theme is Stitching Real or Faux so I'm entering there.
Simon Says Challenge had a choice of two sketches this time around, I chose Sketch One for this card... but sketch two looks yummy too - might have to use that one too, lol. I finished the inside of the card to match the front, basically following the sketch for that too, though you didn't have to :)
I made the sentiment using Wordart, I printed it a bit red so I went over it with an orange Copic... it would have been MUCH quicker to just redo it from scratch! I did a fluttering banner sort of shape 'coz I thought it went with the plane image. Fab'n'funky Challenges has Add a Sentiment so I'm entering there, and One Stop Craft Challenge and Cute Card Thursday both have Anything Goes challenges so entering there too.
Well that's it for today's card, do pop over to the Here Come The Boys blog and check out my teamies inspiration, I hope you enter the challenge - then I can come and check out YOUR interpretation of our picture montage.
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
