Two Little Boys......



I hope I haven't got you singing Rolf Harris's classic "Two Little Boys had Two Little Toys....." after reading the title to this post.  This is the end result from the chaos that was on my table yesterday and it ended up going together fairly easily after the frenzy of die cutting the night before.  All those scraps that you can't throw away come in really handy when doing a project like this.  This is a card I made for a friend to give a couple who have just successfully adopted two little boys.  The main image is from a Lily of the Valley stamp called Milk and Biscuits and when I spied it I knew this was the one for this card.  It's the first stamp I've bought from this company and it stamped out really cleanly.  It was coloured using Promarkers.

The background papers were made using the Hero Arts Large Canvas Stripes stamp and the Boys will be Boys paper was computer generated.  Besides the backing squares, which were cut using nestabilities dies, all the other embellishments were made using Quickutz dies.  I tried to select those that were typically boy themed and I was briefed that one of the boys likes cars and the other likes trains.
Although I felt under pressure to put this card together it turned out really colourful and hopefully represents the fun elements of having little boys around.  No smelly socks in sight.
