A Couple of Simple Male Cards - Six Challenges

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.   Gosh it's a bit chaotic here with the kids being off school!  I did manage to escape to my craft table today for a couple of hours and play with some new images and papers.  Oh yeah, and some new copics and promarkers too ssshhhhhh - don't tell Pete lol - or the SIL Jo as am supposed to be saving for Harrogate next month!!!

The first card is for the following challenges:

Charisma Cards - Think Male
Rosie D - Just for Men
Magical Crafts - Something for the Kids

Digi Image - Charmed Cards and Crafts
Colouring Mediums - Copics and Promarkers
Papers - K&Co
Cardstock - Stash
Card Candy


For my second card I used a new stamp too!  I think the image is soo adorable and I do love lions. These particular stamps are absolutely fab to work with, I can't get enough of them!  This one's for the following challenges;

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Keep It Simple
Stamp Something - Something Cute

He's not girly but I do think he's cute!  I have decoupaged him to add depth but this isn't really showing up on the pic.


Stamp - Whimsy
Colouring Mediums - Copics, Inkssentials White Opaqe Pen
Papers - Basic Grey
Flowers - Prima
Card Candy
Ribbon - Hobbycraft

I quite like the effect of the pen through his fur, what do you reckon?  Well thats it from me, at least for now!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you see.   Take care and happy crafting!

Both cards are so nice. Hard to pick a fav. The little skate border is adorable, will have to have a look see at that sight. The lion is great too. Your coloring of both images is wonderful and is that paper you used with the little guy perfect or what??? Nice job on both.
