This will be a Mother's Day card for my MIL. I thought it would be cute to combine the Pirate kid and the Cowboy kid as a representation of my two boys, and that it would be a fond and familiar image to my MIL who has two boys of her own (both her set and my set are 8 years apart!).
The boys are colored in with Prismas & Gamsol, then masked and Tempting Turquoise was applied as a background with a stipple brush. The love U sentiment was stamped down, then masked, and Mellow Moss was stippled as the background. On top of that, I stamped the memo image from Office Accoutrement and handwrote the 'to' & 'from' message.
All of the layers are distressed and sponged in brown ink. The brads were also distressed because they looked a little too shiny. I liked the elegance of the velvet ribbon against the roughness of everything else.
Thanks for looking!
