Through The Purple Haze - #31

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges
& we have a nice easy theme for you this week, it is
If you join in you have the chance to win a prize of 3 digis from our sponsor, the fabulous
I knew I wanted to make a boy/man's card, as I don't seem to make enough of them, so I picked
the Boy Gamer digi & here is my make
I started off with a white card base & layered some green digi paper onto it, I then printed the same paper in blue & randomly stamped with distress inks, I used peeled paint & faded denim. I then inked the edges with the peeled paint My gaming paper is from The Paper Shelter, I brought it into CraftArtist & layered 2 of the same paper on each other & played around with the layers to give me a greener colour.

I used my promarkers to colour the image & cut it out on the cameo

My sentiment was also cut out on the cameo & I inked the back panel of it in peeled paint. I added some thread to buttons & stuck them on. 

I hope you'll join us this week & thanks so much for stopping by.
