Lily of the Valley Challenge 29

Summer Fun was this week's theme which I thought this card would suit. I bought the digi-image this week from Digi-Stamp Boutique, a set of three "Jim" images which will come in very handy for those difficult male cards. I've coloured him with ProMarkers and I've used a Sakura white pen to add highlights but it's come out a bit thicker than I'd like and not as opaque as it's supposed to be, so I'm a bit disappointed with that - back to the drawing board!

The rest is all Stampin' Up! the papers are Rainbow Sherbert, the cardstock is Green Galore & Tempting Turquoise and the sentiment is from "Fun & Fast Notes" I use this sentiment a lot as it's quite slim and fits on mosts cards quite easily, really handy.

Yummy card Jan ! I've just got one of these digi stamps too - their great. Don't know what to suggest about the gel pen, only that I leave my colouring completely dry then add the highlights ?

What fun and how appropriate for the chaps in our lives! Would be a great Father's Day card too! Hugs Zx
