Masculine cards are sometimes hard to make. They all seem to have the same theme, ships, cars, etc. I had to come up with a card for my nephew and came up with the idea of using Iron Chef Chicks from Stamping Bella. He does love to cook, so what better stamp set!
Of course I had to color them up with my Copics….I do seem to keep going back to them a lot. I like the look of colored pencils, but since I needed to quickly get this card made, I went to my trusted Copics. I have had more practice with them, so I seem to feel more comfortable using them.
For the sentiment, I again turned to Edna Blows A Kiss Hanging Sign Base. This seems to be my favorite lately. I like the look of it when I add fun foam to the back. It makes the sign “pop”.
Since this was a masculine card, no sequins or other embellishments. I did, however, add Manly Chicks to the inside so when the card was opened, they popped up. I did use my Prismacolor colored pencils to color the Manly Chicks.
Thanks for stopping by!

adorable! love your copic and pencil coloring! So do you like polychromos better than Prismas or visa versa?
Thanks Pam! I do like the polychromes better. I seem to be able to not only blend better but also I am able to add more layers of color. I have used both Gamsol and baby oil with the Prismas but have not used any blending solution with the polychromes as I seem to be able to get the look I want without anything other than the pencils. I’ve used blending solutions with the Polychromes but I really don’t have to most of the time.
thank you Nancee!
Totally super. You are the go-to chick for cards! I would give a lot to be able to colour like this!
Thanks! I have time in the evening to practice coloring! My garbage can will attest to that! 😂. Not every image makes it to a card.
