Just Add Ink Challenge # 65

The challenge for us this week is to add "MATESHIP/FRIENDSHIP" in honour of ANZAC DAY. (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps).

It is traditionally known as a day to remember those lives lost so many years past on 25th April 1915, during the 1st World War, it is a day when both Australia and New Zealand unite, just as they, our brave soldiers, known now as ANZAC'S  did, when they landed on the shores of Gallipoli, on a beach now known as ANZAC COVE.....

It is also a day to reflect on the many brave men & women, in all wars, that have given their lives to serve and protect our great nations..."lest we Forget".
I chose to go with Mateship as l had been given this image from a friend and thought that it was perfect for the image of an Aussie Bloke!  Not mine l might add!

Crumbcake-Real Red-Night of Navy-Whisper White C/stocks.
Hemp Twine & Jumbo Eyelet & Crop-a-dile.
Greeting (computer generated).

Have a safe and happy Easter & thanks for stopping by.


  1. As always your fantastic colouring of this image has brought this guy to life.

    Every time I see him he makes me laugh - I think we've all met some Blokes just like him!

  2. This image truly sums up the Aussie image for your colouring!

  3. Great card, Nikki; you captured this "ocker" perfectly, right down to the blue Bonds singlet.

  4. This image cracks me up Nikki and you have done a fabulous job of colouring him - he works perfectly with the twine and eyelet!!

  5. Totally funny image and nowhere near represents my 'Aussie' bloke either. Great colouring and an awesome card for this challenge.

  6. Fantastic male card Nikki. Brilliant colouring.
