Passion for Promarkers - One for the Boys...

Good morning, my lovelies!  It's Tuesday and Team 1's turn to host over at Passion for Promarkers!  Today it's the lovely Marie in the hostess chair and she would like to see 'One for the Boys'...so all those creations for the boys and men in our lives!  We have 2 sponsors this week, the brilliant Letraset are offering one lucky winner a Promarker Manga 12 pen set and the fabulous Polkadoodles has 2 digi images to give away - Guitar Boy and Keyboard Boy!...



As I have mentioned before, I am HUGELY busy at the moment trying to make samples to add to the Gallery on my next disc, which I am hoping to finish in the next week or so and have for sale at Leigh Show on the 21st February!  So, with this in mind, I decided to kill two birds with one stone (such a harsh expression!) and make a card that would be suitable for this week's challenge and be a sample too...This is the very first sneak peek at one of the images from my new disc 'Animal Antics'...
 ...I decided to make one of my favourite pop up box cards and used the dog digistamp, papers and embellishments from my disc...
...The dog was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers - Antique White, Champagne, Cool Grey 1, 3, 4, 5, Black, Nutmeg, Auburn, Saddle Brown and Umber.  I also used Glossy Accents on his eyes and nose for added effect...
...I embossed some kraft colour card with Craft Concepts Woodgrain embossing folder and then inked with Vintage Photo DI.  All the elements used are on the disc including papers, sentiment and embellishments and there is a plain panel on the back for writing on.  The whole thing folds flat to fit into a C5 envelope ...
...Thanks for dropping by to see me today and I hope it won't be long before I can start sharing more of my latest samples!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have been making for your inspiration and I hope you can find the time to join in with our challenge this week!
Hugs,
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :

Anything Goes closes 5th
#271 Make it Masculine until 28th
Anything Goes until 7th
#3 Anything Goes until 13th

Hi Lisa, sorry for answering the question posted in your comment on my blog, but I couldn't find your email address to reply directly.
Yes, I do use the ultra-fine nibs when colouring hair. A black coloured pencil also helps.
Love your pop-up box card here. I still haven't done one of these, but it's on my to-do list...hee hee. Love the scene you've created and the masculine colour scene is just perfect. Cute sentiment too! The dog is adorable.
Hugs,
Norma

This is so cute Lisa, the dog image is gorgeous and a great idea for a pop up box! I've been using your tutorial to make these and I'm hooked on them now! Can't wait for your brilliant new CD!
