Papertake Weekly - penny for the guy


Hi everyone, hope you've had a lovely weekend. A card today for Papertake Weekly who have a theme of  'penny for the guy', cards for boys or men and there's gorgeous inspiration for male cards from the DT.  I thought this little Hanglar boy would work for this one. I've coloured with distress inks, cut the image out then mounted it on Websters Pages paper. The patterned balloon is 3d and I've done some faux stitching with a brown fine liner pen and some real stitching with linen thread and distressed all the edges with scissors.

Hello to 'the girls' :D, it was brilliant to spend the day with you all yesterday and I look forward to the next one.
