More Men!

I'm getting fed up with all these masculine cards at the moment. Fathers Day, Birthday's! It must be time for some womens birthdays soon!

First up is a card I made for my stepdad. He is into his photography and we managed to get this photo of him taking a picture when we were out for a walk recently so I thought it would be an ideal picture to use for his card. I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo but we have greyscaled the image, but my stepdad is actually in colour. I've made the camera using my own template but got the idea from one of the sizzix dies. Not sure the camera and the picture really go together but hey its done now and I'm sure he'll like it as its from his grandson! I downloaded the film strip from the internet and cut out the white sections to fit over the photo.

Next up is another card for my stepdad, but this time its for my mum to give to him. He loves his aeroplanes as well as photography. I was really stuck for this card until I was browsing through the Docrafts site and came across a card that Netty had made. She very kindly let me borrow her idea, which I've adapted slightly. I think the small colour picture works really well with the larger greyscaled image and i've printed it onto the white doodlebug crisscross card which makes it look like its printed on canvas! an unexpected result but a good one!

And finally, this is for the same lady who asked for the triathlon card the other week. Its very similar in that she asked me to make a card to include hiking, cannoeing and camping! well there is only so much you can do withouth going out and spending a fortune on stamps, so I've gone with the road sign idea again. I think its turned out ok?
