Bizzy Becs Male Card Challenge


What great timing. Just after receiving an order from Bizzy Becs with my new Nestabilities and a couple of Bizzy becs stamps the challenge was issued to make a male card - with some metallic element on - AND this challenge has BLOG CANDY attached - woo hoo.

I'd like you to meet Owen - I think he's pretty darn cute! He looks like he's asking for a big hug with his hands out. I've coloured him in my usual fashion - watercolour crayons and aquapainter - and a dash of marker! His buttons have crystal effects on them for a bit more texture. The spider web background is done using my cuttlebug, embossing folder and then cut with my new nesties. The metallic element is covered with the 2 jumbo eyelets - which I had popped on before I read the challenge again and was reminded about the metal!! I thought I had a metal spider charm I was going to add - but couldn't find it :(

Colours are Real Red and Old Olive!

I loved it when my boys would hold their arms wide for a hug! Avery still does sometimes when his brothers aren't looking. (ha)

Such a cute card, Debbie. I always enjoy our visits.
