Boy card


Well we all know it is alot easier to do all things frilly and lacey but when it comes to boy cards, we kinda stumble.  I came across this stamp in my stash and just knew that this would do the trick.  I have never tried colouring with Distress Inks and my coworkers convinced me to try it out.  Wow, it really turned out well.  It takes a bit of practice getting the right amount of water on the aquabrush so it doesn't wet the paper too much but after some tries, it seemed successful.  I used the memory box die wreath (love this one!) and a paper doily for embellishments.  Hope you get some inspiration from this card.  I'm getting quite a collection now.  I don't want to give them up.  Thanks for coming by.  Happy stamping.
