Better late than not at all!

Oh dear - I am late for my post for this week's Fab n Funky challenge. Somehow I had got it in to my head that this one was going live next Wednesday!

Not to worry though - you still have a couple of days to enter and this week's theme is Boys to Men, sponsored by Doctor Digi.

Those of you in the UK will know that we had Father's Day last weekend, so the timing of this challenge couldn't have been better. I used this fab Doctor Digi golfer dig image to make this card for my dad who is a keen golfer.......but...I must not this shape!!!
I have coloured him in using my Spectrum Noir markers, to match the 'golfy' papers that I had already chosen. I made him quite big, as this is an 8x8 card, but I enjoyed the colouring process.

Just one little tip for anyone who is interested. I got the effect of the see through visor by colouring the skin that was underneath exactly as I usually would, and then adding some IG1 over the top just to give the slightest tint. The same technique would work well for glasses too.

I hope you like my card for today, and the comical image too.

Looks forward to catching up with you right here, really soon.
