never mind...y'all are probably too young anyway.
Ok, on to this week's challenge. This week at CCCC, we're celebrating the snips and snails world of boys! We were asked to make a card that would be suitable for a boy. Our sponsor this week is Dearie Dolls by Mary Ellen. She sure does have some c-ute stuff! And the best part is, she offers all the images on her blog for FREE!! WOW!
For my card, I picked this charming little guy with his doggie balloon. I found this REALLY darling pack of patterned paper by DCWV--it's all different patterns printed on Kraft paper. Anyone who knows me, knows I luvz mah Kraft paper.
I colored up my little guy on Kraft paper (what else?) using my Prismacolor pencils, so that he'd match (sort of) the background paper. Can't even tell he's made out of Kraft paper can you? I LOVE what colored pencils do when laid down on Kraft. SO VIVID!!! Then I fussy-cut him out and added real string to his balloon. I cut out the trees from the original background (it's 12x12) and popped them off for more dimension. I did the same with the fluffy clouds.
