Boys Will Be Boys



This was going to be a challenge entry, but I've decided to try another one for that, so it's here instead, just another card to add to my ever-growing stash of cards!

I used my 'Little Boy' stamp by GCS Artstamps (available at SirStampalot), another stamp that I love but don't use often enough! I coloured him using watercolour pencils* - didn't do a great job as I've not used them before, I normally use paints - but practice makes perfect as they say! He was cut out using nesties and layered on some blue paper I pinched from Cory's own craft stash (which is nearly as big as mine, lol). The other layers are Dovecraft Masculine dp, layered on the same blue paper, and the sentiment is cut out from the dp too.

* Mine were a bargain - a tin with 24 pencils for £2.80 from Tesco

Thanks for looking,

Every time you put a thread on the forum about a card on your blog, I take a peep and get drawn down to take another look at this card as I think he is absolutely adorable
a lovely young boys card but without being themed to a TV programme or just too cute! it is just right.
I love it! well done
