A special birthday card for a special boy today. I love this little stamp although this is the first time I've inked it up. Too many stamps as my Mum would say to me..... Mum's not a crafter so fails to understand why I buy more.....and more.... She indulges me though and brings home a suitcase full of goodies every time she visits Australia - Thanks Mum!
Anyway, back to this card...
A close up of the curled edges
The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride and the stamp is from Elzybells (which sadly closed down) I paper pieced the boy using blocks of colour from the large spot paper and chalked the edges with brown chalk before gluing on the image. The rest I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. To add detail to the t-shirt I found a little star stamp (studio g) which I stamped in matching paper and glued on the front. The sentiment is computer generated using Splendid 66 & Indy Pimp fonts. The buttons are from my stash and I tied East of India twisted paper string through the holes.
I better go now and blow dry my hair and hang some washing out as Phoebe will be home from Nursery shortly and I'll not have a minutes peace.
Have a great day wherever you are!
