#37 Monochrome

It's definately turning into autumn now......the days are getting colder!!
I would just like to say thanks to all who entered our challenge and well done to those who won and made the top 4/5.
So anyways... moving on.... the last fortnight has raced up on us again and over at HERE COME THE BOYS we are starting another new challenge which is
#37 Monochrome
Now for those who are not quite sure what (monochrome) is, quite simply all it means is (one colour) So for my DT card I decided to make mine all shades of Blue.
I used my promarkers for colouring my Mo Manning image as they have so many shades to choose from. Then just some simple matting and layering with different paper and card. Wht not have a go yourself but remember the card has to be intended for a man or boy!

#36 Recipe

Morning All,
Well today is a lot cooler than last weekend and so I think the autumn weather is on it's way if this keeps up!!
Summer holidays are over for most and we can all settle back into our crafting chairs more easily ready for winter card making.
So with this in mind we at HERE COME THE BOYS are starting a new challenge
#36 Recipe
3 Papers, 2 Buttons/ Brads and 1 Image
Lots of scope for designing to your hearts content I hear you say! But don't forget our blog is intended to design for the Boys / Men in our life! So here is one I made earlier.
I have a family birthday coming up soon so I thought I'd better get the card done early. I found this fab Digi image in Mo Mannings Digital Pencil web shop. All I had to do is match up 3 papers and colour my image with promarkers. With that done I set to planning a lay out with matting and layering my background. Then added a couple of Brads. I hope you like my card and feel inspired to have a go and enter our challenge too.

At Here Come The Boys we are being sponsored by Bugaboo a great Digi site and we were lucky enough to get to play with some of their images. Here is my DT card for this challenge.

Birthday Bear was coloured with promarkers and I used an oval punch for the balloons all matted up on a stepper card. Hop on over to Here come the Boys to see what wonderful creations the DT have made and have a go
