A month or so ago, I posted a pub in a box card, featuring a hunky barman, mixing some drinks! Well, today I have a variation on the theme to share with you – today, there’s an attractive barmaid pulling pints!!
I was asked to replicate the barman card, with a busty barmaid instead, for a friend’s uncle who will be turning 50 later this month. After having a look around, I discovered Nancy Brew by The Stamping Chef – she was perfect for the job!!
I coloured her with ProMarkers, building shadows by layering the colours. As my friend’s uncle is Irish, I thought it might be nice to stick to emerald for the barmaid’s uniform, with lovely red hair!! The main box card was cut by the Silhouette; I welded Nancy’s outline to the centre layer and cut the shape from cardstock, and stuck the coloured image over the top. All of the barmats were created and personalised in the Silhouette software. The edges of the mats were distressed with various colours of Distress Ink.
As before, the tasteful pub wallpaper was from a freebie file from the StarSunflower Studio – available in several colourways, but the brown and cream just screamed pub to me!!
