Its a no DP challenge at Fab'n'Funky

Hello again

I'm back again today because we have a new challenge over at

No Designer Papers

We're being sponsored this week by Joanna Sheen who is offering a prize of a voucher to spend in store

I had a card to make for the son of our best friends who's 25  - so needed a masculine card with a modern twist so decided that this Kenny K image fit the bill

The inside

I decided to keep it very plain and manly! He's definately not a flowers and bows kind of guy.  so simply used a ribbed kraft card that I distresed with inks as the base and kept everything else to a minimum so that the focus of the card is the image. I glossed his specs, guitar and jewellery with glossy accents - I think you can just see it in the photograph.  I enjoyed colouring this fun image, he's definitely got a personality and I'd like to think I captured it!

This is what I did .....
