Everybody Knows An Everyday Hero

Everyday Hero's, everybody know's one!

Meet Evan, he's just one of those hero's!
He hides out over at Dude Time Doodles & is ready to go whenever he's called upon!
Actually his poor partner is laid up & although Evan is normally quite good around the house.
He's been left with all the housework & the task of carer too!
Can't be easy but he looks fairly cool with it!
Today sees a new challenge over at Dude Time Doodles Challenge blog!
This week it's a colour photo/inspiration challenge!

We want to see how you use the colours, or the pictures to inspire you!!
We don't mind what you do as long as you make a card for 
a male & use the inspiration! 

I opted for an easel card.
I coloured Evan up with promarkers! 
I think he must be a little colour blind, I'm a bit dubious about his outfit!

I cut him out using a nestie & ran a promarker around the edge to ink it up a bit!
I added 3 little button embellishments.

The ticket sentiment I've used is from The Crafty Pad Designs 
& I gave it a bit of a colour with promarkers too!
The DP I have used is from Robyn's Fetish. I've had it printed off in my stash for ages.
Not very manly perhaps! I think it goes well for this card though!
The corrugated card I have used for matting has been in my stash forever too!
I also wrapped a couple of bits of ribbon around it & tied in a double knot!
I hope you like my easel card!
If you need any more inspiration, just check out the sample cards by the rest of the 
Dudettes over at the challenge blog
