#74 Beer Monster
I ♥ Promarkers Recipe - 2 dps, 2 buttons/gems/brads & one ribbon
This weeks prize sponsor - Sassy Studio
Yes, there are indeed only 2 papers on this one....I just split them up and mixed 'em up, not to mention tearing one & then inking them all up with Distress Inks. I chose the layout over at CLP this month (...well, my take on it, LOL so I hope the ladies over there like my version). I teamed the papers with glossy black card stock and made a variation of Dena's fab tent card (shallower & longer so I got the deviations in dimension & layers - & without the hole in the middle).
All colouring has been done with Promarkers and a couple of Tria pens. The image itself is an 'oldie but a goodie' from Pollycraft called 'Beer Monster', which kind of says it all really and I gave him a Man City coloured T-shirt as I am thinking of sending this to my brother-in-law - ( & I am sure my sister-in-law will definitely see the funny side! LOL.) As for the other required elements for the challenge this week, I drew my own buttons and made them 4-hole to be 'extra manly' LOL and these were popped onto the card using Pinflair Gel. The 'ribbon' is another of my variations as I made this from plaiting twine and sewing it down onto the card itself to secure - again more 'manly' that satin would be. LOL.
As it is the tent card shape it doesn't open out, but the 'to' & 'from' can be popped onto the reverse of the card. I just love all the dimensional layers with this one. Hope you do too!
