I love this image of Chester from the latest Moonlight Whisper release from Kraftin Kimmie - he's so cheeky! He reminds me of Jack Wild as the Artful Dodger in Oliver Twist - one of my most favourite films from my childhood! I ws hoping that I could make him look slightly more urchin-like but he does he look as though he could be going to a wedding!!
I've used this week's sketch from Pink Elephant, challenge 50 (poops,missed the deadline!)which also fitted in well with the Kraftin Kimmie, challenge 14 brief of no embellishments!! I know, I recoiled in horror too, but then I thought this might be ok for a male card. To offset the lack of decor, I tried to make the papers look interesting, with distressing and layering. Used my Martha Stewart cornice punch for the outer edges of the central strip then embossed and sanded the inner White Co'redinations strip with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder. Finally, I produced the sentiment on my PC so it would fit in with my Artful Dodger aspirations! I'm also going to enter the Stamp Something Funny Something's challenge which asked for something that makes you giggle or smile - well it made me laugh!! ( My children always say that I'm the only one to laugh at my jokes!) The little watch image comes with Chester. Papers are from Papermania Jessie Edwards set, 7 Gypsies and Basic Grey.
