Winner receives 5 images of their choice.

I used a cute little guy from Digi Darla for this card.  You can go grab him from here.  I chose bright red and blue colors for this card because that, for some strange reason, always makes me think “boy”.   He is framed using a cutting file from my Silhouette Cameo die-cutting machine.





SAM_1193_apieceofheartblogI colored the little boy with my copics. I really like the way it turned out.  I even like the hair which I find the hardest part of copic coloring.

  • Skin – E0000/00/11
  • Hair – E13/29
  • Baseball Cap, Shirt, Patch & Pocket – R24/Bic-Mark-It, Rambunctious Red
  • Overalls – B/93/95/97
  • Flower – Bic-Mark-It Desert Rose/Prairie Berry, YG65




I took some baker’s twine and threaded it through a red button and wrapped that around the bottom of the card. 

I also added some buttons along-side of the image (see above).





To finish it off, I used the same die-cut file on the inside of the card.



You can find out more information about this challenge on the Clear It Out Challenge Blog.  I’d love for you to join us.
