Ron BD10

This week's challenge over on Raise the Bar is April Fools (to do something you don't normally do).

You all know, I'm good with flowers and pretty colors... they are soooo not manly. But every once in a while you need a man card. So luckily there was this challenge. It's rare I do a card with no rubber stamping.

I found the image on the net and altered it to suit me, then colored it in with Prisma Colors. The lettering is my own. The background is sponged Distress pad blues. The guy it's for, goes on a canoe trip with friends in the summer and does some fishing. So I figured it was apropos!!

I also don't normally do humorous cards. This is just so not me.

So brave to try something new Yogi! Your colouring is perfect for the image.

Thanks for sharing all your tuts! They´ll keep me busy this spring, hehe.

What a cute image! You've done a wonderful masculine card here, he'll definitely love the personalization. Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
