Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge Blog

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge Blog is a new challenge blog and I am proud to say that I am on their Design Team. The challenge was to create a boy card. I always find it more difficult to do a boy card because I love working with flowers and ribbon so much and that usually doesn't work for boy cards. With both my kids in grade school they seem to go to a lot of birthday parties throught the year so I thought I couldn't go wrong with a birthday card for a boy. Here is what I came up with for the challenge.The paper is from Daisy Bucket Designs called "Andrew Sprockets". It's not a new line, I've had it in my stash for a while. The image stamp is "Birthday Ian" from The Greeting Farm. How fun is he? I got the image free during their birthday hop. Yeah me! The sentiment is a good ole' Studio G $1 stamp. Got to love those huh?! I colored the image in Copic markers. I inked all the edges with Cat Eye Chalk ink - Blue Iris. The image and sentiment are pop dotted on. I used my scanner to get the picture on the computer and I think I like it better than taking a picture of it. You can tell it's pop dotted by the shadows so that's pretty neat.

Now head on over to Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge Blog and check out what the other design team members did for their boy card. Then get in on the challenge yourself and you just might win a prize.
