Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 128 - Boys Toys

Well Hello to Y'All

First of all a great big "HELLO" (me waving!) to all my new followers - and so many too - I just don't know what to say I'm totally speechless (for a change!).  Thank you for all your lovely comments, like I said I just don't know what to say (me blushing).

This week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss is "Boys Toys" so we want to see your creations centred around this theme.


Our generous sponsor this week is Heather's Hobby Haven where there is a voucher on offer to spend in their lovely store.  As always, check out what the lovely DT ladies over at Totally Gorjuss have created for you - they are so talented!

Here is the card I made:


Now isn't he just a cheeky chappie!

The recipe for my card is as follows:

Digi Stamp:  Kenny K "Scooter"
Digi Papers:  Basic Grey "Skate Shoppe"
Sentiment Stamp & Die:  Whimsy Celebration Circle Pennants from Quixotic Paperie
Buttons:  Cheery Lynn Buttons #3 from Dies to Die For

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hat & Trousers:  B97 B95 B93 B91
Top:  G46 G24 G21
Shoes:  E44 E43 E42 E41
Scooter:  C4 C3 C2 C1 / T6 T5 T3 / E29 E27 E25 E23

I have sanded the edges of the paper and edged them with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Just one more picture for you which is the inside of the card where I have taken the layout on the front and just copied it onto the inside:


And that's it.  I do hope you can come and have some fun with us and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

Thank you so much for your kind words - I may even try to get another card done this weekend - now that would be something wouldn't it!

Take care.

Toodle pip.
