Supplies: Joe the Bookworm (DSB), Check Him Out DP (My Minds Eye),
alphabet twill tape (The Ribbon Carousel), star buttons (Jesse James),
Glossy Accents (Ranger), sewing machine, Copic markers.
Here's a close up. I used some Ranger Glossy Accents to give his glasses some "lenses". I think accenting masculine cards is really hard, so I like to add texture with things like stitching and Glossy Accents. I'm really proud of myself for mastering sewing on my cards. (My sewing machine doesn't get much action other than cardmaking. Let's just say I'm not known for being overly domestic.)
I'm entering Joe into Papertake Weekly's One Paper Taker challenge as well as Shopping Our Stash's Text or Letters challenge. (I bought this alphabet twill from The Ribbon Carousel when they were discontinuing their ribbon sales. I had completely forgotten about it until I cleaned up my craft space to work on this card!)
Next up is "cool dude Joe" from the offer of the month - Joe collection. I think Joe earned some free time after all of that studying, don't you? He certainly looks mighty sure of himself on that skateboard!
Supplies: Joe and sentiment (DSB), Mama-Razzi dp (Bo Bunny), Bracket
