Another birthday card for a couple of challenges using the fabulous Charlie Who by Sandra Caldwell. I'm afraid, in my world, this is the next milestone birthday (for the men, anyway ;D). 613 Avenue Create has the optional twist of make it masculine, the Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge calls card with a numerical age on it, and there's still some time for the Simon Says Wednesday Happy Birthday challenge. WooHoo!
Here's a closeup of Charlie Who. I don't make many cards with a male figure on them, but I gotta say, I LOVE this image. He made the CAS format easy. His expression cracks me right up and he was so fun to color, entirely with Copics, in monochrome warm and neutral grays. I added the number in my Printmaster Program and thought the film strip ribbon and dots balanced the design out nicely.
Hope the sentiment gives you a chuckle. I thought is was pretty clever (if I do say so myself).
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art April Linky Challenge, Dream Valley ATG, Craft Your Passion ATG, TTRCD ATG April 12-18, AAA ATG and SOSS "J" is for Joke (okay, so not as funny as some of them, but I still think it's cute).
