HB2U & GD at CASology

I've been lucky enough to be asked to Guest Design for CASology again and of course I jumped at the opportunity.  The cue word for this weeks challenge is BOY, perfect timing as its my youngest sons birthday this week so I've made the card for him from his brother.

You'd think being Mom to two boys I'd have oodles of boy themed stamps, you'd be very wrong... I'm more a cute stamp type of person but I do have this little skater boy from The Greeting Farm.

He's been coloured using alcohol markers, fussy cut out and positioned so it looks like he's grinding over the word.  The 'brother' sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and I have no idea where the HB2U is from.

The background was created with a grey watercolour pen scribbled and spritzed onto a non-stick mat, using scrunched up clingfilm/plastic wrap/Saran wrap dab the colour onto the cardstock to give him a grungy backdrop.

If you fancy playing along you have until Monday 1st October and its certainly worth stopping by to see lots of gorgeous inspiration from the design team :)
