Arriba Arriba Mexico Phil & Horhay!

Good Morning lovely blog readers, I hope you're all well!
Here I am with a card for Just Inklined!

This fab image is Mexico Phil & Horhay  isn't it  fun?
Great for a blokes card is it not! The sentiment was made on my
PC using a free font called Arriba Arriba  a perfect match I thought!
The base card is  6"x6" Kraft cardstock. 
I wanted this card to have a rustic, Mexican farm feel to it!
The papers are K&Company Hopscotch Boy,
 one of my favourite stacks.

I've coloured the image using Promarkers & a flexmarker
to outline. I used the Promarker blender to give the dappled effect.
The layout was a sketch 

I guess the shapes & colours caught my eye as that
was what I had in mind for this card!

I didn't add stitching but used twine around the outside to
give the effect. I also wrapped a bit of twine around my
rough cut photo corners!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit!
