As you have seen I am addicted to the little girl series that My Favorite Thing has. But this "boy one" caught my eye -- so cute! I finally used the PaperTrey Ink impression plate that I bought awhile ago to create the wood grain background. I die cut a piece of kraft cardstock with a Tim Holtz die. Then I used the Impression plate to create the woodgrain. I lightly inked the whole thing with Vintage Photo distress ink. Love how it made the grain pop.
If you leave me a comment on this post can you do me a favor? Can you tell me if this card's photo is blurry? I am having trouble with my glasses and can't tell. If it is something is wrong with my camera OR I have completely lost my ability to take photos! :-(
I was over at Jennifer's recently and asked Colin to pick a Copic marker color for me to use on the dress in this set. What does a little boy choose for a girl's dress? Pink of course! :-) And the ugliest pink I have ever seen pink. (RV04 -- sorry Copic, not a fan!) The one I ordered online and said I wish I hadn't bought this -- I'll never use it. Wrong! :-) I HAD to use it because sweet Colin chose it. I have learned that of all of the patterned paper I own there isn't one single paper with this pink color in it. I guess I'm consistent in not liking this pink. So... I had to play off the green accent and make the rest neutral. Also, I would usually add some dimension by popping some elements off the card. But I think I'm going to send this to the little girl I sponsor in Brazil .. she'll love it and flatter is better! [Yikes! The skin color is not that bright in real life -- she looks like she spent too much time in a bad tanning booth!]
