Passion for Promarkers - Make it Manly...

Good morning, crafty friends! Another Tuesday rolls around, which means it's time for a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers! The lovely Hazel is in the hostess chair and she's given us a topical theme (with Father's Day on Sunday) of 'Make it Manly'...so we'd like to see all those masculine creations or something for the boys in our lives...
We're being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine who are offering one lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images from their online store...
We were lucky enough to get an image to play with and I went with, the ever so fun, Ten Gallon Ted!   I coloured him up with my Pro/Flexmarkers :
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Coral
Hair - Champagne, Linen, Buttercup
Hat and Belt - Caramel, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Henna, Umber, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Gold
Neckerchief - Red, Berry, Crimson, Burgundy
Jacket - Denim, Cadet, Midnight Blue
Fur Chaps - Cool Grey 2, 3, 4, 5, Storm Cloud
Shoes - Cool Grey 3, 4, 5, Storm Cloud, Black
I added real string to the lasso, cutting slits at the edge of his trousers and threading it behind the image...
I created a U shaped card to give plenty of dimension and added the Spellbinders Rustic Western Elements fence die, and grass and cloud dies in the background.  I made a sheriff's badge from gold cardstock, thinking it would be a good place to add an age number and finished off with a Birthday sentiment...
It looks like the good weather may finally be coming to an end, as it's much cooler here today...it is always a shock to the system to get change after such a lengthy spell of sunshine, but hopefully, it'll be back before we know it! We may just squeeze another day of fair weather until the rain comes in...
Enjoy your Tuesday, whatever you're up to and I look forward to hopping over to see all your wonderful creations, if you can find the time to play along!
