Passion for Promarkers - One for the Boys

Good morning, Bloggers!  It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme has been set by the lovely Marie who has chosen 'One for the Boys'.  Having 2 boys myself, I quite enjoy making boys cards, though don't really seem to make enough of them!
This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Clearly Besotted Stamps who are offering 1 stamp set to the lucky winner picked at random...
Don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow 
the theme.

...I decided to go with a space theme for my card and kept the design quite clean and simple...

...The base card is a sideways easel (still love this shape card as it allows you to decorate inside and display the card so that you can see both the front and inside of the card at once).  The image is the space digistamp from Boys2Men CD-Rom and I coloured up 4 of the images using my Pro/Flexmarkers and decoupaged for a bit more depth.  Unfortunately, I forgot to write down the colours I used!  Doh!
...There are 2 panels inside the card, one with the sentiment 'Hope your day is out of this world!' and a writing panel with the rocket line image on...
...I finished by adding the stars back in with a white gel pen, a few small dark blue diamantes and some Stardust Stickles on the moon, flames and UFO lights!  Hope you like my extra terrestrial creation and don't forget to fly on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have been up to!  Many thanks for visiting me today!  Hugs,
Lisa x

Hi Lisa, this is a fabulous male card...it would delight even grown up boys aka men! Your colouring is superb and I love the bright shades. That sideways easel is a very different shape too. I do hope your work is at least started by now...fingers crossed for you, at this rate it will nearly be Christmas! Hugs, Jane x

Hi Lisa, your card is just fabulous!! Love your colouring and I've never heard of a sideways easel card before!! Will have to have a got at one of those.

Have just been reading back about your building woes - oh I feel for you, I really do. Have been there very recently and am only just starting to come out the otherside. Thanks for the design help - I get totally lost with that sort of thing. I'm not very good at visualising things and get stuck - and you case away with my card. The sketch came from Some Odd Girls challenge blog, so it's not like it's really mine anyway!!

Best wishes,
