The Twisted Sister challenge for next Friday is to make a masculine card, and put wild life on it. Well, this is a retirement card for Fred, and if you knew him, you'd know this qualifies! Lol! I am sure there is some critters behind them trees too....
I had so much fun with this TSC. Used my Cottage Cutz Trees for the first time, and an old favorite from Art Impressions. I am beginning to get serious with Copics, and is it ever a chore! I watch youtube videos over and over. Someday....maybe!
I added Crystal Effects to his field glasses, and mini brads for buttons to his vest. The background clouds were made by sponging Bashful Blue over a randomly torn paper towel. Sponged in some green and covered the ground with an image from Rubbernecker's Kitty Kits. (Love those!) Tucked in some MS branches, and called it done!
If you'd like to join the Twisted Ones next Friday, add the keywords TSC0629 so we can take a peek!
Thanks for looking!

Those trees look fantastic--you have a way with woodsy:)!! Great duds on Fred and the gloss in the peep holes is perfection as are the little brad buttons. You got the details down, sistah!! Brad is coming down the stairs and we are out the door to Kylie's benefit...thanks for the mention in faves, sweetie!!

Awesome!!!! Now I can try this with some of those images you sent me ages ago!!!! Gotta tell you one on me; you mentioned "Kittie Kits" and I started looking for kitties in the trees wondering how in the world I missed them! Then it dawned on me..........duhhhaa.

The gentleman on this card makes me think of my Dad, hahaha!
I love this wonderful outdoorsy card, Pat, and I see some serious enabling going on with those great trees!! I looked at the dies, but wasn't sure about them, now I am! I love your details of the CE for the binocs and the brads for buttons!! Your Copic coloring is great!
