"Little Boy Blue"
This is a great challenge this month folks!! All of the Penny Black Stamp range from J & C Creations are all fantastic and it is very hard to choose which one is my favourite. For this card I have used "Fly Away". How cute is he!!!! I have made this 8 x 8 card by using a blue backing paper with various wording written on it and made 2 tabs down the side to look abit like a book. I have cut the stamp out with a spellbinders die cut. For the little added extras I have used candys, string and a tag with Happy Birthday stamped on it. To give the card abit more depth I have distressed all around the edge using Tim Holtz distress inks colour weathered wood. All of my toppers are coloured in using promarkers.
