Have Fun!

Hey, all!
How are you this fine Thursday?
Thursday is my favorite day of the week,
because it's the night my writer's group meets.
We always have such a good time.

It's been a while since I've played in any challenges,
so last night I decided to visit the 
Color Throwdown blog and saw that they had their
#153rd challenge posted.
I got inspired by these colors right away.

The colors spoke "masculine" to me,
which is great, because I need to challenge myself
 to make more boyish cards.
Here's what I came up with:

I inked up an Elzybells stamp that I'd been
wanting to use, and colored him in with Copic markers.
This was my first time doing a suntan,
and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

iCopic is also having a skin tones challenge
(thanks for the head's up, Laurel!)
so I'll also be entering it over there.

These "Good Day Sunshine" papers from
My Mind's Eye just fit this image perfectly.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening!
I'm off to get some writing time in 
before the meeting tonight.
Have fun!


  1. I'm in awe of your coloring! His tan looks amazing...I'm trying to figure the blending with markers...but you've definitely got it down.

    It's a great 'masculine' card! =)

  2. Love it! That paper goes perfectly with that dude! Have fun at your writers night!

  3. This is adorable. Perfect paper!!! Hey, the icopic challenge is coloring skin. You should enter it in over there!

  11. Oh this is a great card for a guy. Masculine is an area I am not very good at. I will have to file this little beauty away in my brain for future manly inspiration! :)


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to brighten my day!
