Male Colours at Graph'It

Good morning (again lol), this is my second post of the day so please scroll down for my Polkadoodles DT project. This card is for our new challenge over at Graph'It Markers where we've got a bit of a blokey theme going on, as ever there's a fab prize up for grabs and loads of inspiration from my lovely teamies so hop on over to find out all the details.

I've used a LOTV stamp, coloured with my beloved Graph'It markers (for a full list of colours used pop over to the challenge blog). I wanted to give him some depth so I cut out the image and the tree to decoupage them. I love to see those gorgeous dotty backgrounds but they take soooooooooo long to do I usually get bored lol. Anyway I decided to experiment with my background - I marked the position of the image on the die cut I was using for the background and then took my Graph'Its and used the outside of an old biro as an airbrush to create a mist of ink around where the image would go. Here's a better view of the image:

The sentiments and backing paper are also LOTV stamps. I've added some ribbon, raffia lace and some tiny buttons to finish off. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
House of Cards: cute/shabby plus button
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes
Seize the birthday: anything goes
The Male Room: blue green and brown
thanks so much for visiting today, have a good day and hope to see you again soon
