Let's Make Some Music

This week at Crafty Creations our challenge is Boys to Men, making a male creations, whether it be young, old or anything in between.  I don't know about you but male cards can be challenge and who can't use more of them in there stash for future use.

Christine is our wonderful talented hostess this week, this is her first time hosting for us so come on make her feel good and join in the challenge.  She got  Lili of the Valley as our sponsor and got us the cute LOTV images to work with, perfect for our theme of Boyz to Men.    Plus one random winner will receive a gift voucher to LOTV.

I chose this adorable image of a little boy playing the guitar.
Isn't he cute with his little doggie there singing along.  I colored him using my Copics and Promarkers depending on which had the color I wanted.  Now don't look too close as I am just learning this coloring stuff, but feel like I am making some improvement.   The background music paper is printed from Imagine using the Imagine More cartridge.  I printed it on tan paper to give it a worn like look.  I cut him out using my Spellbinders and then cut a scalloped shadow circle with my Imagine.

I am not too happy with his little music book, I think I over colored it, but in the end it does kind of match the background.  Can't see it in the picture but I used my Gelly Roll clear pen for the strings and tuning knobs on the guitar.
So come on what are you waiting for, get those guy cards made and join our challenge this week, look forward to all those guy cards for inspiration.
