Just for You Son!!!



This is my card for Daniel tomorrow. I'd already decided to use the High Hopes Stamps as its a great image for a boys card! I coloured with Prisma Pencils and Sansador and experimented with a bit more shading than I normally use. Think its a bit daunting when it comes to shading unless your like some of the Pro's out there, but am pleased with my dragon even if I did lay brown ontop of green!!!. The papers are a ???, pretty sure BG's but I've so many pads and have put my big pile away again now. Matted on Bazzill cardstock and used a punch in just one corner. Did lay some other elements on the card but I preferred to keep this one simple. I'm also putting this in for this weeks "Our Creative Corner Challenge" which is colouring. Off on the school run soon but think my mojo is slowly returning and hoping to make another card tonight. I'm gonna play with my Prisma's again I think. Apologies, I've not done so much blog hopping this week as much as I would have liked. Didn't mean to miss your lovely creations but thats life I suppose.........
BTW, Daniels card total is now up to 60, I really must find a large enough box and some gift wrap. Dont know if I'll be able to sleep with all this excitement, thanks for looking!!!
