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.

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.
