Funny Face Man card....

Hello there!

I hope you are all well and having some time to escape to your craft room (or corner/gap under the stairs... like me!).

Well... I've broken a promise I made to myself last week... after getting a lot of nice crafty goodies from my husband for Christmas, and spending some of my money (a lot!) on the sale... I promised myself that I wouldn't buy any crafty stuff on-line or at my local craft store (I have a craft store 5 minutes walk from home... DANGER!),  at least until the end of the month...
Well, I went out for a coffee with a friend on Monday, next door to the mentioned craft store... and I couldn't resist buying something... Don't get me wrong, I didn't spend a lot of money, it was all in the sale, and it was a bargain!
2 Christmas Papermania Urban Stamps, a Tim Holtz Die! and a roll of washi tape for £6.50???? I had to buy it...  I'm tempted to go back tomorrow while Alaia is in school and go through their sale bin again! oops!

It has been a while that I haven't done a male card... It is our nephew's birthday this week, he'll be 23 and has just started to work and he's getting trained at the same time in a big accountancy firm in Manchester.... so looking for an appropriate image for him, I saw this one by Redonkadoodles called "Funny Face Man", he just looks like our nephew!!!!

The papers I've use are from  "The Pier" by Crate Paper, "Rose Garden" by First Edition and "Snippets Collection" by Studio Calico.

I distressed the card stock with the Tim Holtz paper distresser and inked all the papers with Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Old Paper.

I coloured him with  my Promarkers.

For his hair: Black, Cool Grey 4, Cool Grey 3 and Cool Grey 1.
For his skin: Sandstone and Vanilla
For tongue: Pink Carnation, blossom and Pink Mittens.
For shirt: Cornflower and Powder blue.
For trousers: Cool Grey 5, 4 3 and 1.
And finally, for his tie: Pear Green, Lime Zest, Azure, Coral and Dusky Pink.

I created the sentiments on my computer.
Washi tape is from local shop.
Paper clip and eyelet from my stash
