Franky Pastry - The Paper Shelter

Good afternoon everyone. Can I start by saying welcome to my 2 new followers who are both part of my new design team.  Yes... I have joined another one. I was surprised and delighted last week to be contacted by Denise from 'Passion for Promarkers' and asked to join their team.Woooooooooohooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you can see I said yes,(who wouldn't want to join such talented ladies. I start with them next week.

On to today's card which is a Paper Shelter image, 'Franky Pastry'. A great image for Halloween or men/boy's cards in general.

I stamped and cut out the image and mounted it on a background I created in Serif Craft Artist.  I just got my new Professional 2 today and love it, I can see me creating lots of backing papers with it.

I coloured Franky with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, creating his mottled skin by using the blender pen. Couldn't resist adding a few black gems to the top corners.

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look. Hope you're all having a good week.

Well done you, it couldn't happen to a nicer lady. I am so glad people are beginning to show you the respect you deserve with your cards, you make such beautiful creations and it's always nice when someone asks you to join their team, way better than trying out for a position and losing it (been there, done that, make it crafty didn't want me and it really hurt!), but you are doing so well at the moment and Passion 4 is a great team to join, very highly regarded in the community so you have landed on a good one there. Really proud of you Eileen.
Love the latest card, I have to make another black and orange plus one more colour card so guess what type that will end up being!! Not a huge fan of this very american holiday but it seems to grow bigger each year and will end up being massive in the end no doubt, so I now just go with the flow and have even bought some themed papers too!
Anyhoo kid, hope life is being kind and look forward to your first Passion 4 card, can't wait.
Hugs 'n Stuff
