Sarah Kay in Orange!
This card ahs been made for my husbands Uncle whom is a massive Wolves fan, hence the old gold(orange) and black hues to the card. I have coloured this Sarah Kay image in distressed inks (he reminds me so much of my eldest son Edward). I mixed my colours together to get the bronze I wanted for the dungarees, I am very pleased with the effect and I have tried to create a shadow behind him and the dog, has it worked? The papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia pad, i had forgotten I had these but came across them while paper hunting and thought that they would work brilliantly for a male card. I edged the papers in black soot distressed inks as I wanted definition but without being too bulky. Finally a punch swirl in the corner and tiny pearls as you can't put flowers on a male card and I thought it needed an accent.
