For the boys

Why is it that making a boys card is so hard?

There is so much embellishing you can do for a girl but when it comes to a boy i a totally stumped sometimes....crafters block!

Okey dokey i have two boys cards for you today......

Super Boy
They are both lovely digital images made by Mo's digital pencil and are available from her site
They are absolutely fab and just right for the little super hero or knight in shining armout in the making!  Both hero's in their own right.
Super boy was first coloured in using copics(i lost the list of colours in the turmoil, so sorry)
I then  used Tim Holtx distress inks in stormy sky and China Blue to bring in a stormy sky.
 I decided it needed alittle more so i sprayed the image (masked super boy first) with Crafters Companion Iridescent spray glitter and then added stars in silver and blue for a bit of bling he was then backed onto silver mirriboard and mounted onto a card blank that was coloured in 3 shades of Cosmic shimmer vintage mists........
Last but not least i added BROTHER and gilded it with Indigo Blu's Gilding flakes in.......
I thought it turned out rather well!
I would like to enter Super Boy into the following
Charisma Cards Challenge 39 Badda Bling
Mo's Digital challenge 155 anything goes

The Knight
So now we have another cutie Kitchen Knight

I firstly used paper for men for the background of the card.
I then mounted Kichen Knight (coloured in copics)
onto blue speckly card and then mirroboard before finally mounting him onto the card....I stamped in a festive flag along the top in celebration of our young brave knight and finished him off with a  mounted "Happy Birthday" and four silvery stars....

Not bad for a couple of boys cards .....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
