Grampy and Me




Here is a brand new image from the Prairie Fairy.... It was inspired by her son and her father his Grandpa one day after a fishing trip. Isn't it just adorable. This is my second attempt. I coloured this image once and was sponging yesterday and my hands were a mess so I went to get a baby wipe and left it near my coloured image. Well the image soaked up the wet from the wipe and smeared all over. So I had to restart. My grass was less bright on my other but oh well. I like to give my masculine cards a rustic feel, so I distressed all the edges and used neutral tones. This card is for the following challenges.... Lexi's Creations- sketch, Quirky - chocolate/cream, Treehouse - masculine, ABC Challenge - Unused stash (sentiment/fish), Crazy 4 Challenges - pocket, Our Creative Corner - masculine, The Creative Cottage - for the boys. Thanks for stopping by....

Awesome girl-I'm waiting to use this image for my father's day card for my Dad-it's pretty precious!U did great with the coloring! My Tilda card-one of the back papers touched my brown ink pad and soaked up the color-I was p.o. Luckily, crafty girls can turn a blunder into a beauty! XXX Trish
