Trying out Hamish

My brother celebrates his 33rd birthday this week, and I thought I'd give my new Hamish stamps (from sugar nellie) a try. 

I'm still not comfortable making cards for men, so this is quite simple. I used a jump card as a base and wrapped eyelash fibre round the face of the card and glued various sized blue and olive coloured ribbons to the base to give it a bit stability (these cards tend to fall over if you embellish the face too much).

I coloured the image, as usual, with promarkers and cut it with nesties. I matted it onto the orange/greenish distressed look paper from the BG cupcake paper pad. and cut that out with nesties too. I added the curved greeting peel-off from an Anita's birthday sheet.

Great card! Love the image of course but I love the way it pops up!! Looks fab with all those buttons..very manly!

To answer your question on an earlier post..if I am colouring with promarkers I always use memento or versafine ink. If pencils then Stazon and I stamp onto Concord Record card.
Hope that helps a little, Judy x
