My first card uses a sketch from Card Positioning Systems--CPS 172. Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
I'm also entering this card in another challenge--Fun with Shapes and More. Their challenge was to use anything punched--my circles--and distressing. I scissor distressed the white cardstock and the patterned paper. Then I used a sponge dauber and black ink to distress the edges of the brown and white cardstock. I really like scissor distressing on cards for boys--it just adds that extra "messiness"--lol!
My second card uses Sketch 62 from The Sweet Stop:
And here's my take on this one:
Both cards are made with the Max and Whiskers paper from Basic Grey--I LOVE the colors of this paper, and even though I'm not crazy about the pet theme, I bought it with these stamps in mind. I thought it would work well for masculine cards AND for beach layouts. Miller is colored with Copic markers except for his hair. I had to use Tombow watercolor markers for his hair because I am just beginning to collect Copics, and none of my browns were dark enough! I am entering this card into the following challenges:
