I decided to participate in a Paper Wings blog hop. The one had very few limitations. The idea was just to get stamping and replenish our summer card stash. Since I am almost totally out of little boy cards, that is what I concentrated on. Here are the three cards that I made:
This first one I made with one of my brand new stamp sets, called "Spunky Sprite Boys". This card is the first time the rubber was inked to paper. I used the K-pad Boyz paper pack from TAC on the bottom. It is such fun and happy paper. The "stitching" around the edges of the image is actually a stamp set called "Running Stitches" that I use constantly.
I made this next card using some images stamped for me by my great angel friend, Kim. Thanks again Kim.
I used DCWV cardstock, blue paper, and K-Pad Boyz paper from TAC. The yellow paper I embossed with my Big Shot and a Cuttlebug folder....love 'em.
I colored with colored pencil and baby oil. I really didn't believe it would work as well as the mineral spirits that I have, but it did great. I added some Crystal Laquer to the water.
My only copy of the catty is lent out, so I can't tell you the set name right now....I will try to remember to do that later.
And this last card was also done using the images that Kim sent me, and is from the same set as the image above.
I kept it really simple, but I really like how it turned out. I have been really into using black lately...what do you think? I colored this when my eyes were getting tired, and since my glasses were stepped on at youth camp, you will have to excuse some the the details.
