Here is the card I have to share today:
I used a stamp set from October Afternoon that I bought aaaages ago. I don't know why its taken me so long to use it, isn't he cute? He has a little doggy friend, and a kite and a cloud and loadsa other little bits along with him in the stamp set. See the supplies list for the name of it.
I stamped the boy, the dog and the kite and kite tales in Rich Cocoa Memento ink. I coloured his hair using SU! close to cocoa ink and a copic colourless blender pen. I love the texture is has given, it sorta looks like strands of hair as opposed to a big block of colour with shading. I highlighted his freckles with a pastel pink PM and grounded the boy and dog with some Moss PM to look like grass.
I thought I would paper piece the kite to make it look a little different. I like the results. There was no fussy cutting involved, just simple straight lines, hehe. I love this patterned paper for boy/man cards, as its not totally childlike, and I think oranges and blues always work well on male cards.
