Grandson's Birthday coming up - not till late October, but I found this image from Mayze Art that I think is perfect for him. I have RARELY had any card done two months in advance - I will probably lose it of forget I have it!
He is of an age where I must be careful not to have anything girly on it... so this is for "manly men" only!
[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
- A2 size card base
- Image colored with Copics and matted with the solid brown CS after wrapping it with twine.
- Used a Micron pen to doodle the helmet's graphics.
- Buttons threaded with twine and knotted on top
- Two more coordinating DPs rescued from stash and layered on the card front.
- Inside uses leftover papers from the front.
