Wild Thing Challenge

  Hey ya'll...here's my card for Wednesdays Wild Thing Challenge over at Operation Write Home. I was actually in the middle of making a lot of paper shirts from the shirt tutorial that was posted earlier in the week. Scroll down and see some of them. But first...my "Wild Thing" is a Monkey which is kind of becoming my theme of sorts...what can I say...I like Monkeys and this little guy was just laying around from a previous project he never got used for. He is made of a stamp I got from the dollar tree and I stamp it twice...one on dark brown for the face and once on the light brown...cut out and "pop" the parts...then his tail was made from jute & of course I added googly eyes for humor. I think this could be a nice card for a child.

This is another card based off of Shirley's Sketch from OWH. The "gone fishing" sign came from my scrapbook factory program...I cut it out...added eyelets and wire.
Here is one of the "shirt" cards...I tried to keep it simple but also added the gone fishing sign to coordinate with the fish shirt theme.









This shirt I did in a checkered flag theme. The diamond plate stainless was actually stainless look contact paper run through the diamond plate cuttlebug folder. The letter tags came from the scrapbook factory software. Again this is based on the challenge #14 sketch!







...so I was in a groove making man appropriate cards and this one started out that way but took an unexpected turn. I goofed on my image which was to be a dad grilling. I had to do "triage" and swapped images -so I ended up with a summer theme & I liked it. The image is also from the scrapbook factory It is always more challenging (for me anyway) to come up boy and man cards so when I create one it is good! Thanks for looking...have a great evening...tomorrow is FRIDAY -woot woot!

Wow~ I love all of your cards. Very inspiring for making cards for men and boys. It's always amazaing to see that there is no limit when you create something beyond the sketch provided. Thanks for visiting my blog and left me very encouraging comments. Have a wonderful Friday!

The monkey is absolutely adorable. Is it humanly possible not to grin at "googly eyes"? I seriously doubt it! I also love how you coordinated the strip of paper and the fish shirt, some Dad is gonna love that card.
