Pizza anyone ??
































Needed a Birthday card for my nephew who will 30 next week, so decided to make him this cool Gruffie one !!
 
He changed colour several times, but didn't look right till I drew in his fur with a fine line pen, ( not perfect, but not too bad)  To colour I've use distress inks and spectrum noir pens plus a good old pencil to add shadow around him on the ground.


































 
 
Loads of layers and texture with these fab gauze papers by DCWV and I embossed each one with a different pattern to add yet more texture and then distressed the edges !!  The sentiment is from a Stampendous set called "Beary Mice" All topped off with a spotty purple ribbon bow and tie.

To me it has a very grungy boy look even though it has purple and pink in it !!

Would love to enter:
 Papertake Weekly: anything goes with the option of torn edges
613 Avenue Create: anything goes with option Happy Birthday
Great Impressions: add a sentiment
The Ribbon Girls: just add ribbon

It has fabulous texture Diane and such a lovely image for a male card too. Those gauze papers are great, I haven't seen those before and they look really good distressed like that.

Diane, your card made me Lol! It's gorgeous BTW!
We had a fantastic tiny pizza place round the corner, which only seated 20 people & you could never get a table! A few weeks ago, it opened in larger premises & we've been there every Saturday since!
