This weeks challenge for High Hopes is a card for a Dude. No flowers!
I find that a bit difficult because I like all the frilly stuff (have 2 daughters) and I don't have too much hanging around here for masculine cards. So for me this is a good challenge.
This adorable fellow is the "Fearless knight". I love all the detail he has, he's great to color. I embossed the image in black twice and painted them with Tombows.
From the second image I colored and cut out the shield, face grill, top of his sword and the plume on his helmet. I would normally use silicone to layer the small pieces but the tube was as hard as rock, so I used foam tape to layer them. The background is three separate pieces also layered with foam tape. I find it really hard to see all the 3D effects from the picture. I used the computer to make the sentiments. It was still looking a bit plain so I used some peel-off hearts. I stuck them to some cardstock and cut them out and layered them, too. The background paper is from DCWV glitter stack. I'm sure if you look real close you will also see those wonderful stickles!!
Where would my cards be without them...lol.
Well that is my hand at a masculine card....I hope you like it.
Thanks so much for dropping by and Have a great Monday.
