Teenage Boys Cards curtsey of Mo Manning

Hi bloggers,


my little one has been very poorly yesterday and gave his bug to me, so I keep this brief as I have a blazing headache...
I had to make 2 birthday cards for teenage boys, one a keen gamer and the other for a music lover, Mo's digital pencil had the perfect images and as I had them coloured ages ago (I mean months, not weeks!) it was very quick work as well! 



I used a Basic Grey paper for the background and mounted the cut out image (which was coloured with Copics) with foam pads to give a bit of depth. The sentiment is by PTI and stamped onto white card that I distressed with Antique Linen Distress Inks. The border on the side was cut by hand with a homemade template. I pricked holes and added faux stitching as well as distressing again with Distress Inks in Antique Linen.



I am entering this in these challenges:




Craft Your Passion - #44 - Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time - #48 - Do It With A Digi
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Little Claire's Designs - #1 - Anything Goes
Stampin' With The Dragon - #19 - Anything Goes

As I can't post both cards into the same challenge if it's in the same post, I'll repost the second card in a minute....
