Challenge #22 - Cards for Men - "Sketch"

Good Morning Everyone, I was asked by my Team Leader to create a "Sketch" for this fortnights Challenge over at the Cards for Men and I do hope that you will enjoy playing with it.


And we are being sponsored this time by Letreset and they are offering a fabulous prize of a pack of Aquamarkers.


And here is what they say about themselves:-

ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price. Avilable in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card. ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades - the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer. ProMarker's quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking
And this is the card I created for this Challenge.


I used this gorgeous image from Teddy Bo, and printed him onto white card then used my promarkers to colour him, then cut him out with my rotatrim and then mounted him onto a piece of purple card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card and the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi "Azucar" paper set, the first one is a black and white background of sculls in a damask pattern, then on top I have used a red background with a white spot on it.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the right with the sentiment below.
To finish of I have used the Whimsey stamp and die set to create the pumpkins in the bottom left hand corner, and with some Halloween charms stuck down the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you to will take part in this "Sketch" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
