Heroes


I made this card for Father's Day - to celebrate my 2 heroes from Nottingham - Robin Hood and my dad! :)
I followed a sketch from Cute Card Thursday by Claudia - and it was brilliant! I loved making this card!  I was also inspired by the theme on Papertake Weekly which is this week Ice Cream Flavours - me thinking Mint Choc Chip here ;)

I made the arrows out of cocktail sticks and feathers, and my husband David thought they looked hilarious (Tut - Heathen!)  The paper was Joanna Sheen, and a textured hand made paper I found in stash.  This image so was nice to colour in - Edwin as Robin Hood from the Magnolia Stamps Fairytale range.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Just Magnolia - Garden theme - Sherwood Forest innit? :)
Cute Card Thursday - Fab Sketch
Papertake Weekly - Ice Cream Flavours - Mint Choc Chip
Crafty Cardmakers - Cards for Men
Cup Cake Craft Challenges - One for the boys.

Thanks for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

I do admire your colouring - wish we lived closer to swap ideas. The hat & boots are amazing. Those feathers are ingenious & I love the swirls & buttons & the bark effect paper. Love the ice cream too. All the best with the challenges. Great to see you back with paper, ink & punches.
