Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Sing

Isn't that what you think about when you look at this digistamp?  Meet Gary, the Giftbearer.  He is a product of Bonibleaux Designs Digis.  This website deals mainly in male inspired digital images.  Gary was offered on Crafters Digital Art Center's Color Challenge.  To enter, we had to create a card with Gary using turquoise, green, rust and grey.  This is my rendition.

I created my card background using the above colors.  The brads on the side strip coincidentally already had those colors on them. 

These are the Promarker colors I used on Gary, the Giftbeater.
Shirt - Honeycomb and Spice
Skin - Satin and Dusky Pink
Hat - Midnight Blue and Cool Grey 2
Pants - Duck Egg and Turquoise
Shoes - Cool Grey 5
Gift - Olive and Pine
Flowers - Leaf Green, Baby Pink, Red, Canary and Purple
After mounting him on a label cut from Lacy Labels (it is the All Boy base cut) the white background seemed too stark, so I applied green chalk to tone it down and help it to blend in. 

The inside of the card is decorated using the following cartridges.
Frames - Lyrical Letters - 5X6.5 and 4.75X6.25
Hearts - Love Struck
Wording - Mickey Font, Locker Talk and Paper Lace

I hope you enjoyed meeting Gary today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come again tomorrow.  God Belss You!!  Peggy

  3. Peggy - I love this card, your coloring is fabulous I am going to have to check out that digi site.
    And I am so glad you enjoyed that paper, it is great to work with and I also like the sheen it leaves. I have better luck with it than GinsK luxury card stock?

  4. What a great card! I love the little phillips screws on the side. Are they brads?
