EAC - Computer Game Crazy

Well it's Tuesday and that means a new challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge.This week the theme is shabby. Perfect for another masculine card that I have made for my Nephew's birthday.

 I love card making but I am finding spending so much time sat on my behind crafting is not good for my stomach.......it has nothing to do with the number of chocolates I have managed to stuff over Christmas! So that I can keep crafting I am spending two nights a week doing Zumba and Pilates. Monday's Zumba is already out the way only tonight to go and then I'm done for the week Yay!.

As for most crafters I am finding that I am accumulating quite a few cards so I have decided to have a go at selling them on Ebay. If you are interested I have a link on my sidebar.

Back to today's card.......,
Materials Used:
Paper: My Minds Eye - Hattie
I have ripped the papers into rough square shapes and then distress the edges with Tim Holtz Distree Inks (Walnut). I also added gold embossing powder to a few edges.

Image: A lovely digi image from Mo Manning over at Digital Pencil Too
The image is coloured with Copics and cut out so that it stands proud of the paper.

Embellishments
Two buttons and a piece of string.

The inside of the card has been decorated the same as the front but wthout the embellishments.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

This is such a great 'guy' card! I love the papers, and the touch of gold embossing and the rolled DP are wonderful touches. Glad you shared it with us in Mo's Challenge.
