Hi there 🙂 We have a new challenge over at Creative Fingers 🙂 Our theme is always ATG, so you can let your inspiration run wild! This time, we are sponsored by the lovely Angelique, who is offering this stunning stamp set as a prize.
I’m a little bit sparse on my masculine birthday cards in my stash, and it’s been ages since I’ve used a KennyK image, so combined the 2 to make this card 🙂 It’s so sad that KennyK no longer has a shop, but luckily, I stocked up before he closed down!! I colored it with my Copics, having a bit of fun with the subtle print in his smoking jacket.
I used this sketch, from Cheerful Sketches as the guide for my layout.
A few years ago, I picked up the background paper, with this image in mind…..took me long enough to get around to making up a card, huh? I didn’t realize that it was 2 sided paper, and the back side was book spines!! I cut one of these spines out as the vertical element of the layout. An old book page seemed to fit in with the theme nicely, so after tearing the edges, I lightly inked it. The sentiment is printed on my computer. Some rich red matting finished the card off.
I’d like to enter this in the following:

Oh I love the print you’ve added to his jacket! This is a gorgeous male card, with perfect colour choices and paper. I did the same when I heard Kenny K was closing down! So good to have these wonderful images in our stash! Thanks for sharing this with us at Penny’s!
Great card. Thanks for playing along with us at Penny’s.
