This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we would like you to share an easel card - one suitable for a man, of course!
My DT card is made using a decoupage and paper which will be on the forthcoming La Pashe CD, The Best of La Pashe 2014 but are also included in the Male Hobbies download available from the site. Not that painting is an exclusively male hobby, but on the other hand this is a card that any artistically inclined man would really appreciate.
I hope my art > easel train of thought isn't too much of a cliché! To make the raised part of the bottom of the card that the easel rests against, I cut an artists palette shape freehand from some kraft card and added paint splodges cut from some of the backing paper. And as a finishing touch I added a couple of small paintbrushes that have been sitting in my craft stash for years - they came with a glass painting kit but I preferred to use my existing brushes. I always knew they would come in handy some time! If you wanted to make a similar card but didn't have any spare paintbrushes, one or two small pencils would do the trick.
