Hey there, Georgie BOY!

Hi all. My card today uses the adorable ‘Georgie’ by Mo Manning. I love the dynamism of the rotation of the image and I hope that I have emphasised that with the additional diamond behind the image – and of course, with all the goodies falling out of his pockets as he cartwheels over. LOL. A sling-shot, two sweets (purple ones from a well known choccy manufacturer- all donations welcome!), and two marbles. The first two were drawn using a fineliner pen and the marbles were punched out of card using the largest hole on the Crop-a-Dile before a narrow Promarker line was drawn down the middle.

The image itself has also been coloured with Promarkers with softer tones of orange, purple, green & black and which tie in nicely with my chosen paper. I kept the layout very simple as I wanted to get a ‘carefree’ idea across whilst still adding to the movement of the image. At least I hope I have… LOL….that was the idea anyway! Hope you all like it.

Tine :)
