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:
