Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #18 - "Anything Goes"


Happy Monday! It's that time of the week for another challenge over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. This week's theme is Anything Goes and our sponsors this week is Digi Darla and Sassy Studios. I chose to design two cards this week.  I used the "Boy with flowers" from Digi Darla and "Aero Boy" from Melania Deasy.  I didn't realize that I was creating two "boy" cards until I sat down to color. lol  I know making "male" cards initimidate some people, but it just comes easy for me.  I love all the frilly girly things you can do with a "female" card, but I also enjoy the challenge of making a simple "boy" card and getting the same "wow" factor.

Here are my creations...

Boy with flowers
(The gorgeous Spring Fence scene behind the boy is from Designed to Delight.)

Aero Boy

Boy with Flowers
I started out with a diecut shaped card cut out from my Cricut.  I layered on blue Bazzill cardstock and matted my image on top.  I colored my image using Copics and added a border using my Copic multi-liner pen.  I also added a sentiment from Paulette over at Create with TLC and finished it off with a plant charm from my stash.

Aero Boy
I started out with 5 x 5 cardstock from SU and begin to layer on dps.  I used my Spellbinder's circle to cut out a black mat and dp.  I colored everything using my Copics R35, R37, E13, E21,W5, W3, W1, W00, C1, C3, Y08, Y000, Y11, BG10, BG11, and B00.  I used Black Copic marker to make a trim around the image.  I added some glaze to his goggles.  I cut out the clouds and popped them and the image using 3D pop dots.  The sentiment I created on my computer.

Well, I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week.
