When a Boy is Special






Don't tell me that I had not warned you! Yes, I had told you that my Motivet stamps had arrived; and that it won't take me long to start creating with them! I have been bit by the Motivet Bug!! hehe

They are so darn cute, who can resist? These squirrels are the sweetest! And have you seen the new Hippos? Lol they can make you laugh out loud anytime. If you REALLY haven't, go and take a look here. Yo will surely fall in love! Yeah, don't tell me that I didn't warn you if your purse feels lighter after your visit!! :))

As maybe my friends and followers know, I had won these stamps by winning the talented Kellie Winnell 1st Challenge. I had promised her then, that if it will be possible, I will also participate in the next challenge she will do. And in fact I did! I loved the sketch she presented this time as well, so when I needed to do a boy card; I immediately chose this stamp, and Kellie's sketch. But for the challenge ANY stamp can be used. I only chose this as I just wanted to use it for the first time in her challenge! :)


Kellie, this is not all! In fact this card, in a few days' time, will be crossing lands and oceans to your Australia :)) Yes! Cause I made this card for a Special boy indeed :) He is my nephew's son, and lives in Australia. Obviously, as you see, Harley is his name! He's such a gorgeous boy.. but I haven't ever met him in person. He's 5 ys old.







For this babe I returned to my faithful Distress inks and reinkers..I wanted to play with shades, and I still feel more confident with them, than with Copics. I have only used Copics twice :)





I left the inside simple as well.




As it is a boy card,I kept the design to a minimum. I only used rhinestones (small ones, in the image's corners), buttons and fibres as embellishments. I wanted the darling image to be the focus. The sentiment is computer generated, and the name is Alphabet rub ons(Thank you Jacque for these.. I so love them!)








Have a lovely rest of the week! I do so hope you will join Kellie in this challenge. You can also win for yourself three of the gorgeous Motivet stamps.


Smiles!

I love to see a prize put to good use, and this, much like the beautiful card that won you these gems in the first place, is AMAZING!! Love your papers, the use of that punch, and the fibres and buttons let the card be masculine, but visually interesting. Your colouring is fantastic, I do think Motivet stamps look great in distress inks!! Great take on the sketch and thanks for sharing. I hope to see you back next time around!!
