Okay dokey folks... here goes with today's challenge card... this time it's for GET FUNKY....
True to form Anice has set us yet another fantastic challenge this month with the theme being to make a creation (card, atc etc) for a boy...
No problem I thought as I immediately had an idea spring mind so off I went to the computer & threw in my Funky Daze CD... clicked on boy word book & printed off the letters I needed... again in true Anice fashion no time wasting involved as it was simply a case of click & print.
Once my letters were printed I cut them out & highlighted the brown with a Clear Sakura Stardust Pen & added some Card Candy which I also highlighted with the pen.
Next up, stamped my Sk8 boy image by Dimension Fourth & water coloured using Sakura Metallic Pens. Used several images which I then layered up for added depth.
Finally to attach the whole book together I puched 3 holes down the side & tied some hand spun string through the holes... this also gave some additional colour & texture to my word book.

A wee close up of my boy all layered up.
Word Book : Funky Daze CD - Funky Hand
Card Candy : Craftwork Cards
Sakura Metallic & Stardust Pens : Markingworld
Hand Spun String : Ebay
Off to enter the challenge now & see what I can find to work on tonight...back with you all tomorrow with yet another card...
Happy crafting

Glad you liked my challenge this month! Word books are just so easy to use and like you say, click and print! The hardest bit is choosing which collection. Or cd. Or download!! Thanks for entering the Get Funky! Challenge – hope you can join us again next month! Get Funky!
