FOR THE BRAAI-ING DAD

"Braai" is the South African word for  barbecue, and it's a national pastime here.  I have made a card for the dad who likes to braai!

I layered an image over a precoloured background, and coloured it with my alcohol markers.

I also added the bunting and the sentiment, both of which are png digitals.

The silver circle of dots was made using a template and a Leeho metallic gel pen.


I also used the following for my card:
whiite cs base
blue cs mat
buttons
twine

My card was made according to this sketch at The Outlawz today:


Thanks for stopping by today.
