New Toodles

I just love this image and I just love making cards for boys at the moment (I must be going mad !!). I have made this card for one of Ski's friends at school.



I have used the same layout as the previous one as I thought it worked so well.

I used some lovely brown bazzill for the card itself.

The pattered papers are BasicGrey Mellow - oh these are sooo scrummy !

The green and red card are from a new pack Papermania have brought out and its just textured coloured card 6x6. The colours in this pack are fantastic and I think also coordinate with the Papermania patterned papers.

The image is Matthieu and Arthur from Toodles and Binks and I have used my ProMarkers for colouring it. The colours I used were : ruby and sandstone (shirt), shale and henna (hair), petrol blue (trousers), umber (shoes), canary and pumpkin (lolly), cinnamon (Arthur), marsh green (leaves). I hope this helps you ?! I cut this out with my new nesties which finally arrived today. For some reason I thought they were going to be bigger than they are so I could only use the largest one for the image.

Again the lolly has been covered in glossy accents and Twinklets to give it a "yummy" look !

The number is from The Papermillshop and covered in Mellow paper and crackle glaze and walnut stain distress ink.

The sentiment is KandCompany in Brilliance coffee bean ink.

The ribbons, button and brads are from my stash.

I also want to say a huge, huge thank you for all the lovely comments you left me about my "toot" ! You brought a tear to my eye and I can't believe how kind people who you don't even know can be. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and love you all (tissue please !). Thank you.

  2. Boys cards are always difficult to do for some reason. I love what you have done with this though. Very boyish.
