LCI - Boyz Rule..Girlz Drool!

HA - have you heard your kids say that? yes, I know those words should end in "s", not "z"; but my card is all cool like that ya know? :D

This week at Ladybug Crafts Ink we're celebrating ONE FOR THE BOYS! And I'm using Graffiti Wall Josh - LOVE!!! I'm not much in to boy images...at all...and don't do too well with masculine cards but this image makes it so very easy - love how it turned out!

I colored the image with Copics, then added a sidewalk in which Josh is standing on. I used some two-tone colors on some of the Graffiti and then you can see in this first picture, I carried over the graffiti look to the envelope. I distressed the card with Black Soot distress ink as well as a paper distressor - I also curled a couple corners and used some gray and white and black and white floss. The base card is True Black and the main panel is Smokey Shadow embossed with lines and gently highlighted with PTI cream ink. A pop of Scarlet Jewel behind the image ties all those great, funky colors together.

TFL; hope you'll take the time to join us at Ladybug Crafts Ink and celebrate ONE FOR THE BOYS.
