Pile It On! Challenge - For or Featuring a Man

We have another new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'For or Featuring a Man'

Our sponsor this week is Dr Dig'is House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 digis of the winner's choice!

This is the card I've made for my Dad for Father's Day...he's recently taken up fishing, so I thought that this image was appropriate! It's from an old Papermania set called 'Stamping for Him', that my Mum picked up in a charity shop. I coloured some of the image using watercolour pencils, and then paper-pieced his clothes. The papers are all from the 'Here & There' pad by Studio Calico...I doodled some simple borders, and then added a sentiment from the Hero Arts 'Sentiments' set.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
