Sneak Peek #3

This set is called, Let's Hear it for the Boys!, and will also be released on Aug. 1st with the other 3 sets, by My Favorite Things! I don't have many "manly" sets, so this one jumped right out at me! I love this main image, as well as all the other little pieces that go with it, especially the slippers! (More info on that later in the post.)

I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color him in. I love the variety of the Pencils vs. the Copics. They create such different looks! I wanted a softer look with this PP (Crate Paper, Cowboy Collection), so I used the Pencils this time. (Also, I have much more Pencils than Copics!)

Okay, now for the set. You have the main image you see above and slippers, as well as a remote, newspaper, drink of choice, fish plaque, bowl of chips, baseball hat, golf club and tee, and a variety of sentiments you can piece together to address Father's Day, Grandparent's Day, Birthdays, one that says "Let's Hear it for the Boys!", and a longer sentiment that would go great on the inside or out! As you can see, most anyone could find a man in their life who would appreciate a card made from this set. Mine will be for my Dad's birthday. This image is SO him!

Hope you're all having a great weekend! I just got back from a bike ride to the park with the fam! Nice to get outside, even if it IS 100% humidity! LOL
