Pile It On Challenge 11 For a Man

 Hello again, welcome back to my second post on the Pile It On Design Team. This time we would like to see your creations for a man. Yes we know they can be hard to make cards for but we all need them at some point in the year. This time we are sponsored by

Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  Here you will find monsters, aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many many more wonderful digital stamps. Our artist and founder cut his teeth in the craft world at the company "Just  Inklined", where his unique digis made a huge impression. We're hoping to continue to entertain and amuse, with our growing catalogue of great value digis with a sense of humour. 
The prize is 2 digis of your choice and there are  lots to choose from. 

I was able to work with the fabulous Player Two image this time, as soon as I saw this image it was the one for me. I coloured it with my Spectrum Noirs and my Promarkers I am finding that by combining the two sets of pens I have so many more options always good when crafting. 

I had used my Craft Robo to cut it the image with a nice border as I could see the scene in my head. I used an old Sizzix Texture plate to emboss the blue 'wallpaper' and a wood grain folder to do the floor in Kraft card. I didn't link the Kraft just as it was so I used some gliding style waxes I made using clear shoe polish and some mica powders. I rubbed over two colours gave it a buff and went over with the darker one again for some definition. I think I will be making these again as I am finding them rather useful at the minute.  

I coloured some white card candi to match the buttons on a well know game controller, cut the sentiment and a mat on the Craft Robo and viola all done. Now I choose this particular image as it reminds me very strongly (read it is) of my daughter and my husband when they are paying video games together.
