The theme at Eclectic Ellapu for the Purple Team in August is
"it's a man thing"
(something for a male. masculine: colours, prints, textures)
I used some stash I have had for a while, and some brand new stuff to make this:
I used some SU new DP (Floral Boutique) and Not Quite Navy card
My surfer dude is mounted on a piece of card which has been dry embossed
The sentiment and the surfer are on some hessian which is on some card which is on some DSP which is on some card........
A bit of blue twine and some sequins
Behind the dude is the Swirly Bird die cut twice - one in card and once in silver sparkly card to imitate the sea and waves, and give some further texture to the whole
The whole is on a white square commercial blank card.
The surfer and the sentiment are from a set which has to be three years old, floating around in the stash. Now I have broken open the packet to use two pieces - the other 7 or 8 pieces will be used perhaps in another three years!
You have a month to join in the challenge.
