At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Father’s Day/For the Boys!We have the fabulous Just Some Lines as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I can’t take all the credit for this card.I had a lot of help from my DS2 especially with the colouring.After showing him how to blend Polychromos pencils on the top of Emo Cowboy by Just Some Lines’  hat he did it by himself,well with just a little interference guidance from me 🙂 He picked it it up so quickly and was pleased with the results.For the rest of the card we picked out these cowboy themed papers and some corrugated card.The horseshoe was cut from one of the papers and some brads were added to it.We also decorated the rest of the card with a few more.The sentiment came from a set that was a magazine freebie,trimmed into a banner shape.

Image : Emo Cowboy by Just Some Lines
Sentiment : Past magazine freebie
Colouring Mediums : Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils,Boldmere Low Odour Oils Thinners

    This card is delightful. Your son did a wonderful job with the colouring and the rest of the design showcases the image beautifully. The corrugated card adds great texture and the colour palette is fabulous. Kudos to you both.
