One for Father's Day...

...well I'm back peeps,
I have set myself a goal : to blog at least one post per week.
Somehow though life just takes over.
The card I have made for my Dad this year
 is a little different to the ones he usually gets.
I felt like a change from the typical gushy hearts and bears theme.
I found this fabulous image by Kenny Kiernan,
I'm sure my Dad will love her too.
She's called 'Carmen Electra'.

I used a set of coordinating papers byDovecraft, 
the designer is Sandra Ranarison and the papers are called 'charcoal prints'.
The card stock used is by Papermania, capsule collection 'sizzling red hot'
 I love the quality and texture of their card.

I had so much fun colouring her in.
 Of course using my beloved promarkers,
 (burgundy, crimson, poppy, salmon pink, walnut, caramel, cool grey and black)
 but I have advanced into attempting to use prismacolour pencils.

I'm sure he'll appreciate the underlying joke...

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Simply Create Too challenge 15  fathers day (or for a male)

 One Stop Craft Challenge 186  - fathers day

Thanx for popping by...

Keep Calm and Craft xx
