Louise - A Quick & Easy Boys Card

Hi, Louise here and I have done a nice and simple boys card today just to get into the swing of things here at Artfull Crafts, this being my first post on the blog.

I have used some older Cosmo Cricket papers from the "Snorkel" collection which are fantastic for making summery boys cards, the border chipboard and sticker are also from the same collection. There are some fantastic Cosmo Cricket collections available in the Artfull Crafts shop.  Cosmo Cricket is one of my favourite companies as you can buy a collection pack and everything is there, ready to whip up gorgeous layouts and cards without having to hunt through your stash for things that match.  The image is a digi stamp from Pollycraft which I have coloured using Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol. The border punch added a nice finish along the bottom of the horizontal panel to create a little extra interest for the eye.

  6. This card is very sweet. What is gamsol?

  7. Gamsol is odorless mineral spirits which is used for thinning paint I think.... but it works fantastically for blending wax artists pencils.

  8. The card shows the craze of younger boys about skates running.
