Old Guys Club!

Masculine cards are always a tough one for me.  I recently had to make one for a brother-in-law.  I have had this image “Old Guys Club” for some time, but had yet to use it…until now!

I used my Copic markers to color the image.  I have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post (and there are a lot of them!). 

I had stamped them in a light gray ink rather than my normal black Memento ink.  This gives your image a “no line” appearance.  I did add a few black lines around the glasses and the eyes of one of the men, but otherwise, went with the “no line” appearance.  I added some “grass” to the bottom of the image so that they appeared to be “grounded” and some light blue shading around them. 

I didn’t think they needed any further embellishment, so I just mounted them on some brown card stock and then some plaid pattern paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

    Now, I noticed a difference with this image but was not sure what, until you mentioned using the grey ink instead of black. Works brilliantly! Don’t get me wrong, I still love the black outline images too. Now, the guy on the right – reminds me of the character Jonathan from Magnum P.I…..I could pretend I only know the programme from re-runs…

    Your coloring is always perfect, Nancee!
    Love this “no line” look, I found, that Memento ink in ‘London Fog’ works well for light outline, but it wasn’t as crisp as black.
