Card Design: Scribbles Designs Fiesta Tuesday

Are you in the party mood?  
Well I hope so because we have a fiesta mix going on that you are just going to love!

 Please join us over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog where it is
Fiesta Tuesday!!!

   Today Sandy is launching six brand new images.  Here is a sneak peek at five of them...
Carlos Carl

Farrah Flamingo

Cool Carl
 To see the full size versions of these nifty new images you will need to head over to Scribbles Designs Challenges and there is even more incentive to do so but you'll have to keep reading to find out why!

I got to play with this handsome fella...

Frank Flamingo

Each of us Scribblers was secretly assigned an image and a colour to work with. You now know the image I was given, but can you guess the colour? I'll give you three chances...

 Here is a closer look at this studly Flamingo...

Here is a close up of the inside of my card...

Here are the card details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

General Notes:
  • So, what were your guesses? Blue? Pink? Red?  If you chose red then you are right and you've won a brand new....nope sorry there is no brand new anything to win but I had you going didn't I?
  • Hmmm...I knew it was too good to last.  The Ott light broke (I haven't told you this yet have I?).  At first we thought it was just the bulb but apparently not.  So now I've resorted to anchoring a treble light to the Ott light in order to get half decent lighting.  Unfortunately, that is all it is--half decent.  So it is back to the drawing board until I can afford to pick up something new.  Vicky had suggested Wal-Mart so I think that will be my first place to look once I've saved up for it.
Digital Image:
  • Frank Flamingo:  Isn't he just the most manly flamingo you have ever seen?  He draws you in with those steely eyes and you become puddy in his wings.  Frank is so cool he actually walks on water--just one more reason the ladies flock to his sideIt was coloured using Copic markers.  Frank:  N0 (base before adding pinks), RV00, RV02, RV04 (feathers); C3, C5, C7 (beak).  Grounding:  B00 (around Frank); B00, B02, B05 (water).
Digital Sentiment:
  • Real Men Wear Pink:  Tee hee.  When I received Frank it took me a day or two to figure out what I was going to do with him.  He had me mesmerized for at least the first 24 hours but as the spell started to fade and I could think a little bit clearer, it just came to me.  My husband looks AWESOME in the colour pink.  Most people complement him every time he has his pink dress shirt on.  However, there is one man at work that continually teases him.  Obviously, he is a man that is insecure in his own skin.  When I finally give the card to Raymond, who hopefully will not have seen this post ahead of time (if not --surprise honey!), I hope he will take this card to work and politely shove it in the other guy's face proudly display it on his desk.
Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Designer Papers:  Dotted paper (front & inside)--Recollection's Bright & Basic Paper Pad. Pink and white hatched paper (front)--Recollection's Bright & Basic Paper Pad.   Shimmery red (shadow front & inside) --Michael's open stock scrapbook paper. 
  • Craft Smart Ribbon.
  •  Heart Stickers--from Dollarama.

All the animals have such great facial expressions!

Dawn @ LilyPinkScraps said...

Love this :) Great use of that cool flamingo with the sentiment!

Cely said...

LOL. you're so funny, lisa! love the card and how you made pink and red so manly!

Unknown said...

This card is gorgeous and brilliant... I love love love the sentiment you choose and the story behind it... I think pink looks absolutely amazing on men!!!!! Michael had to wear a pink shirt last week to school which represented Antibulling... I agree with what you said about the Guy that teases Ray, anyone who torments a man in a 25 year relationship with someone as beautiful as you are has serious issues or lack of people to tease.. lol
I thought I won, I picked Red!!! LOL
Thank you Lisa, awesome post!!!

Crafting Vicky said...

That's such a totally awesome card. Just love the coloring and he couldn't be better to shove... oops meant display proudly ;)

Sorry about your light... hope you find something like I did at Walmart...

I had to really, really laugh. I love, love, love the words inside your card. Now, I must confess "my man" would never get caught in that color. No, "let's take a chance" in his bones. How about yours? Does he where pink? The artwork as always is above fantastic. Great job!!! Hugs, Sue
