Penny Black Saturday Challenge Guest designer

Good morning everyone

Another post for you all today.
This is my second card as Penny Black Saturday challenge's guest designer for May. The challenge this month is masculine; not one of my favourites I have to say but luckily I had some great Penny Black stamps to work with. I decided to make a shaped card using Spellbinder's labels 11 and for a change used green backing papers. Here is my card - 
I have used Penny Black's video boy which I have coloured with Spectrum Noir pens - 

  • hair - TN7, TN8 and EB8
  • skin - FS1, FS3 and TN2
  • clothes - LG3, LG4, DG2, GG1, GG2, GG3, GG4, GG5 and IG2
  • food - LY1, LY3, JG1, EB1, GT1, GT2, CR8, IG1 and IG2
  • floor - EB1 and EB2
  • controller - IG7, IG9 and IG10
  • sky - IB1
I also used - 
  • green core'dinations
  • white centura pearl (for the card base)
  • Forever Friends The Good Life paper pad from Docrafts (an old paper pad)
  • Spellbinder's labels 11
  • Die'sire Happy Birthday die
  • Sara's signature collection Just for Men pop dotty embosssing folder
I embossed the core'dinations with the pop dotty embossing folder and then sanded it back to reveal the core.

I do hope you are able to join in the fun at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Why not pop over to the blog to see what the design team have made.

  3. Hi Lesley! Boy this image is so so my son! I love the PB techie/boy images as they are few and far between and stand out as such original designs. You have framed your gamer with such an interesting and colorful design. I love how you delicately shaded around your gamer on the white piece...that really makes him pop! Great card with lots of fun details! Thanks for playing with our team! ♥ Sue Kment

  4. Another fabulous card Lesley - I love the sanded embossing on this one!
