Hey Gnomie - Kraftin' Kimmie GDT Card

Hello peeps,
Hubby & Jodie arrived home safe and soaked from the ride from Plymouth docks, they are both tanned and tired and managed to trash my nice clean & tidy house in minutes, bless them I say through gritted teeth lol. Six loads of washing later I have finally cleared their washing and I'll be giving them their own ironing as I've much better things to do lol.

Today I have another GDT card to share for Kraftin' Kimmie as it's new challenge day & this week the challenge is

I have actually made another "man card" which as you know I don't enjoy as much as a nice flowery OTT girlie card but being short of time it needed to be a quick card.

Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Tim Holtz
Film Strip - Tim Holtz
Stars - Studio Calico
Twine - Hemptique
Charm - stash
Tools - nesties, SCAD corner die & sewing machine

The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, E93, hair - E19, E17, E15, clothes - B41, B21, B0000 / E77, E74, E71 / YR23, YR21 / G43, G40, rock - N5, N3, N1, N0, water - BG11, BG10, BG0000, B0000

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -

Time to rescue the washing off the line me thinks as it's getting very dark & grey again here after a lovely sunny morning.
