Mo's Golfer


I need some mens cards unfortunately they still have birthdays and at least finding an image is easy when you use Mo's Big Guy images this time I've used Big Guy Golfing.
The papers are the freebies out of a craft mag ideal colours for a man card but that was the last easy part.
So out came the zigzag border and wrought iron fench border punches from Martha Stewart and my tiny SU punch for faux brads. I didn't find my colour paperclips but brought some more but I did have to raise the whole image mat using sticky fixers.

Had a couple of questions lately one do I use silicone glue to give my images dimension and the answer is yes, that means I'm in control has to how high I want the layers also it helps to keep the curve shape when it dries.

Another was how I coloured the dress of the WOJ bride, I used prisms/polychrome pencils for colouring so I use one that goes with the papers with the latest card it was pink. I draw over the lines of the dress creases or where I think shadow would be then using a clean paper stump and sansodor I spread the colour leaving paler pink and white. Sound double dutch when I read this back so hope you get the idea.

Karen aka Saxo Stamper/Diary of an ordinary Girl asked me to mentioned this candy, its not an ordinary candy but a way to donate much needed funds for a single Mum called Ruth. Please pop over to Karen blog and read Ruth's plight and help.
