ATCs and Cards with Attitude - fancy a challenge??

So it is that time again when a new challenge has been set over on ATC's With Attitude new to making ATC's - so am I have always loved the idea and I am now getting addicted to making them - lol (another thing to add to my list!) 

Why not grab a few minutes to join us in the challenge and have a go - they are so good... When creating one as a card maker I do find it challenging however I am slowly getting passed that - what I tend to do is look at the image and think card but smaller (this works for me!)
So with this little cheeky chappy I decided that I would colour him with my pro-markers, but rather than use subtle colours I went - bright...
Once I had coloured the jeans I used a blender pan to fade them and I am really pleased with effect that this gives... Where pro-markers are concerned I am still learning and I am pleased with the progress that I am making.


I decided that I would decoupage his head as originally the challenge for this week was supposed to be 'faces' but it has been changed to anything goes... I secured the decoupaged heads with silicone and am pleased with the effect.
The background for this ATC was kept relatively simple - the lime green was the ATC blank coloured with my promarker to match and then I stippled he blank with basic grey and a brush - just to add a little depth.
I then mounted the ATC on to navy blue card to match the jeans in the image with a panel of lime green card as well. In the bottom right of the image I added three card candi to the panel and inked the edges of the panel also.
So why not come on over to ATC's with Attitude and have a go at the challenge - this week we have a great prize on offer from Limited Runs (some amazing images)

I hope you like my ATC and thanks for looking...
