#55 Let's Pretend




I am so happy and releived to be back to my crafting. Due to being very poorly I haven't been around for almost three weeks. It is so good to be back. I have sent my apologies to all of the Design Teams I belong to, I have so missed being part of the challenges, but I am back. Yippee.!
To get us started at Cardz 4 Guyz, we have a challenge from Kim, the choices from this challenge are so varied. LET'S PRETEND. Got your thinking caps on, it can be a faux technique, or you could be pretending to be someone and dress up, anything is possible when you pretend.  The Design Team have again come up with some amazing inspiration, please pop over to see their work.  Returning from being sick I decided to try a new technique for me, which I found at Splitcoast Stampers,
there is a lovely video of Melissa Banbury for a faux leather technique.

Thank you so much for this Melissa I am pleased with my first attempt but I now can see where I can improve, which I will be trying the next time, for I greatly enjoyed the technique.
I used these stamps - Fir Trees and the flying owl - Sheena Douglass and tress from Elusive Images.
All the colouring has been achieved using Tim Holtz Distress Inks,
I hope you will have a try either with a faux technique there are so many available, or your project could be of dressing up as long as it is  MASCULINE , we will be thrilled to see it.
