Makes for Men Cards in the Making Card Magazine - Issue July ´18 with Pixie Pete

Hello Oddballs

It´s me, Tina:  Finally I can show you my cards which I created for the July issue of Making Cards.
I used the Oddball Image # 306 for all cards and then designed each one differently. 

Here I have created the background with watercolor paints and
Pete here and on all other cards with Polychromos colored.
This card is a so-called CAS Card
what means 

Many of you know that I enjoy making steampunk cards.
And so the snail Pete had to be on this card, too.

Here I gave all them a rusty look, used small metallic and riveted bricks and 
many metal gears and other metal ornaments. 
I also put Pete a cylinder on and changed the shell.

And because Making Cards from my cards has made a men's topic...

"Makes for men"

...did not fit my 3rd card in pink in the magazine.

Nevertheless, I would like to show you!

This is Pixie Pete in pink and with flowers.
Just a real girl card ...

I liked it wonderfully; 
but it is just not a men card 
and now on the way to Lizzy Love, 
as a belated birthday greeting!
