Try It Out Tuesday #15 - Boys Can Bling!

Happy Tuesday! You may remember that over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, Tuesday is the design team challenge day - Try It Out Tuesday {uploading keyword TIOT}. This week DT coordinator Suzanne Dean challenged us to Bling It! You know I am always up for a good bling challenge, so here is my contribution:

I used another one of my fabulous Anki's Sweethearts from SCACD. This is Isac with Skateboard. Isn't he adorable?! I have two boys so I loves me a good cute-but-still-boyish image! Don't forget that Susana has a great deal on these fun images - buy the "bundle" of all 10 together and you save $16.50. That's like getting 2.5 stamps for free -- and free is good!!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copics {of course!}. I went through and added some highlighting with the white gel pen after I had him all ready to go. The cardstock colors are More Mustard, Really Rust and Brocade Blue. Various papers from the Basic Grey scrap bin {thanks Heather!!!} to finish off the layers. I did the rounded panel with Nestabilities. Kaisercraft rhinestones along the side and viola! Plenty of bling but still made for a boy - the best of both worlds. I think one of my DS #1's friends will probably be getting this one as a birthday card, actually. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by today! Sale alerts for the store - all SMIRKS are still 50% off, and individual bottles of Flock are 25% off!! Don't forget to visit the SCACD store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see everyone's TIOT creations all in one spot! You can also visit the individual blogs by clicking the links on my left sidebar. Have a good one!

Boys can bling and not look like sissies! I love the blue and this baby is just too cute for himself! Love how he looks like he could just skate into my living room! Love boys like that!
