Male Card /The Male Room Challenge

So I needed to make a male 60th Card so checked out The Male Room Challenge site .So the theme is Green , So I decided to have a go .So I used my gelli plate and using various shades of green /aqua acrylic paints .to make the base background ,Then I stamped on top and die cut the earth from some spare practice gelli paint "pulls " which were shades of green .
I hope my brother in law likes the card .

60th Birthday Card

So I thought I would try one of these  lacy gate fold cards ( at least I think that's what it is ) .My friend has taken up pilates so this sort of seemed appropriate  ,The ladies were coloured with a mixture of promarkers and copics .

Northern - accidental lights

Tim Holtz Distress Oxides
I was playing about with my Distress oxides - and was making a smooching mess but once the card stock was dry I was left with some amazing backgrounds .I put some oxides around the edges - Was trying to define the top and bottom but in my haste I stamped the trees in the sky - so the sky ended more green than I intended BUT like all happy accidents the end result was the "northern lights effect". Very happy I was too .Hope you like it

Happy Christmas one and all 🎄🎄🎄

the colours used Twisted Citron ,Wilted Violet ,Mermaid Lagoon ,Mowed Lawn and Faded Jeans

I will enter this card in Muse:Christmas Visions and Casology Wk323 North
