Papertake Challenge - One For The Fellas

Here is my card for the Papertake Challenge this week which was the tricky business of making cards for men! I had another go with my Dottie and George downloads, this time I used the Fireman George image from the George at work downloads. I printed him off 3 times onto beige, yellow and red cardstock and paper pieced him together (I like using PVA glue for this). I also used a brown and blue felt tip and finally used an orange pen on the yellow card for shading and a white gel pen here and there to create a bit of shine. I also put the image into a graphics programme I have and made a tile effect with him to create a multi-image background paper.
I went printing happy this morning so I will be busy making Dottie and Georges all evening I think!
Thanks for looking, Love Becky xx
