Hello, hope all is well with you and yours.
Today sees a new MilkCoffee Showcase and the theme today is Boys. You know those things that leave the toilet seat up, dirty plates in the sink and think football should be a recognised religion! Can’t live with them; can’t roll them through the Big Shot either!
So my creation today was entirely inspired by the MilkCoffee image I Want to be Like Daddy which is available here. I saw this cute little boy in his daddy’s clothes and thought about him rooting through a chest of drawers looking for all the items. So that’s what I did.
I made an A6 top fold base from Kraft and ran it through a wood panel embossing folder from Sheena Douglass. I then cut out three ‘drawers’ and embossed them too, but so the grain ran horizontally. Card Candi coloured with permanent pen became the drawer handles.
I printed my image onto Neenah Solar card, coloured him with Spectrum Noirs and fussy cut him out.
Now this is where it all gets a little ‘amateur hour’ I’m afraid. I decided, in my infinite wisdom, to have ‘clothes’ hanging out of the drawers in true ‘I have been a-rummaging, Dad’ fashion. But, as I couldn’t find anything suitable to use I found myself having to draw the things myself. (Roll eyes towards the heavens! Oh dear!)
So please forgive the slightly wonky scarf (drawn onto patterned paper, DAD stamped in sepia Archival, and twine added to the bottom using a Crop-A-Dile), the spotty tie (coloured with Spectrums and then given a dotty design) and the hankie at the top (be grateful, it was going to be underpants!).
So there you are. I quite like it actually. It certainly came out so much better than I thought it would (kind of pinning for the underpants now though. Did I say that out loud?!).
Please meander over to check out all the lovely creations by my teamies here and visit the MilkCoffee shop to see the fabulous images they have. And don’t forget to join in the current challenge on the challenge blog which, in total contrast to the Showcase, is Girly!
Thanks so much for looking!
