Don't swear dear

This morning two challenges showed up on the dashboard Cardz for Guyz and Try it on Tuesday, both with the same theme "Make us Smile".  Yikes thinks I thats a toughie but as I have friends on both DTs thought it deserved a go.   Settled in the craft room expecting a long slow hunt for something that might elicit a rye smile or two.

Quickly came across the Old Jalopy die and right away knew I need the Rogue Redhead set of this sweet old pair.   Die cut the car, twice and coloured it with distress inks then stuck all the elements together.   Decided on the base card and worked out the layout.   The oldies were stamped on base card and masked, everything else was stamped on scraps of card and fussy cut.

Had a great time with colours for this one.  The woman is bathed in righteous light whist the man basks in her glory somewhat bad-temperedly, in fact he is close to turning the air blue.  A female cat watches the scene playing out she has worked out that car is going no where and her safest place is in front of it.  

The old couple and the cat are coloured with ProMarkers, everything else a combination of Distress Inks and Adirondack Dye Based inks.  Well putting it together I had fun with anyway just gotta hope you like it.
