Boys Rock!

Hello again,  I just had to return to post 2 boys cards.   I used the great 'Skater' image from my friend Claire's new shop.    
Please pop over, I promise, you wont be disappointed!  She has allsorts of images for all sorts of tastes and she is adding more by the day (that may be a slight fib but there's more there now than when I bought the skater!) 
I am going for the kill now, oh what the heck and am going to enter this/these cards into the Allsorts challenge which is 'male themed'.  Just as well it covers adolescents too!

Thanks Pinky for letting me know about this challenge!  This week it is 'distressing'.

Ive distressed both PP with inks, scrumpled it up and inked a bit more so that it caught on the creases.  I inked the brown card after it was embossed, added a layered sentiment, hessian 'ribbon' and personalised them both.   

Ive coloured the images with watercolour pencils then added some sheen and gloss.

Well, I hope the two 12yr olds that Ive made these for think that they are ok!  I really enjoyed making them.

TFL again

Hi Keryn

Two super cards, such a great image for a twelve year old or indeed most youngsters. Nice to see a bit of 'scrunching' as well, something I always enjoy.

Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

Hi Keryn

Love your cards.

Lots of gorgeous detail and what a great touch to add the receipients name without it being "in your face". Very subtle.

Great image - perfectly coloured.

Thank you for playing along with the Allsorts Challenge this week.

Love Jules xx
