More Men's Cards

After spending the last 2 weeks making Father's Day cards practically non-stop, little did I think that I would be back making men's cards this week and 3 cards for the same man - now that is a challenge as they all have to be different. The brief was that he likes shooting and black labrador dogs.....oh help....out of my comfort zone and needed to get my thinking cap for this one .......big time. The images are from a Clip Art CD but were a bit bright but a little bit of inking with a distressed inkpad toned them down to match in with the papers.
Papers...Memory Stor:
Copper Eyelets

Quite happy with the finished results but it's just a pity that my photography skills are crap - can't seem to get the cards straight in the piccy.....something I need to work on...don't you think.
Well it's a gorgeous day here so off to eat my lunch in the garden and then on with the orders...this time a birthday card for a 2 year old G..I..R..L......HOORAY.

  2. These are fabulous--there's been a call for 'masculine' cards lately; at least, my friends and family say so. :)

  9. Great cards, as usual, Kath. :o)

    With my photos, there is a custom rotate option in Photoshop Elements, so if I forget to adjust the camera on my tripod, then I can adjust the angle once it's on the puter. Don't know if that helps?
