Hello everyone, today's card is for Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge 15 where they have a fabulous sketch this week and Creative Card Crew Challenge 37 where the theme is to use string. I was looking through my stash of stamped images and found this cutie, I have also just bought some MME Wild Asparagus DPs and I thought I'll make a card for a BOY! I don't usually make male cards unless I have to and I think all mine turn out drab, but this one came together easily and I really like how it turned out..... maybe I have turned a corner and come out of my male card making block!!!lol!!!
The cute little image is from Hanglar and I got it in a swap with a blog bud. He is coloured with distress inks and highlighted with my inkssentials pen. The DPs are MME and I have inked the edges of all the elements with distress ink. I also had a mental block when it came to distressing papers..... I still can't tear them or rough them up but I can now manage a bit of inking!!! lol! I think for this male card the inking really added a bit of depth and I'm pleased with the end result. The buttons, brads and twine are all from my stash and the ticket is from Tim Holtz.
