"Best Friends"

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Yesterday the wife and I made a road trip to Greenville, SC to visit "Stamps and More by Eleanor". We have fun and picked up a few items, as usual.

Today the card that I have posted, is one of a series of cards for men. The series is called "Masculine Manuvers". This series is just to illustrate what type of cards a man would like to recieve, no fru-fru.

"Best of Friends"

The stamp used for this card is from "Stampavie" and is called "Bobby and Me". It is a very cute stamp and fun to color. The scalloped oval and the oval were cut with a Spellbinder die as the sentiment background was. The white dots on the scalloped oval were applied with a white gel pen. The final thing added was the "Jesse James" Glitter Dot that I added to the corners of the card.

Copic colors used for this card were;
Skin; Eooo,E00,E01,R11
Hat; R24,R27
Shirt; YG01,YG05,YG09
Pants; BG000,BG02,BG05
Shoes; Co,C03
Dog; Y13,E11,E15

Pretty simple card, but will work for anyone that is an animal love, or not.

Hope you enjoy the card. Your comments are always welcome.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Your coloring is fantastic as always. I need to make more masculine cards. I tend to go towards more girly cards. This one can be used in so many ways. Young to old!!! Thanks for sharing!

    This is a really great card and I want to thank you for posting a vendor source for Crygen paper. Though I have used other papers that I like, I never could find out how to get Crygen. Thanks again.

    Bob you cards are always so cute and so well done. Is there anyway that you could do a video showing how you color your Copics? I am a newbie and would like to see how you apply your color, I just cannot seem to get the blending right. I know it takes practice, practice practice, but I am a show me person...
    Again you are so good at what you do and love your cards. Keep up the wonderful coloring....

    Oh Bob, this is too cute and precious! I always struggle to make "male" card and this is perfect. True, a dog is man's best friend, just like my fur baby. Your coloring is beautiful and you used the perfect DPs! Now I have to search your blog to see where to get that Curious White Cryogen paper! I ordered some but it felt so flimsy! Oh, and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today! Now I've found you! LOL! Hugs, Cami

    Bob, this is such a great masculine card. I don't get to make many of them and I don't have any really good images for them. I think I need to really watch you closely so I can get some ideas.

    Beautiful image and great coloring. I can't wait to see all your other masculine cards as I find masculine cards challenging.
