Whistle while you work

I have not made a boys card for ages and ages and have been itching to ink up this little cutie – Finn whistles while he works from Stampavie  – too stinkin’ cute!!

I have used those gorgeous K & Co Julianne papers again, sorry but I am warning you in advance you are going to see a LOT of these papers on my blog, I can’t even bring myself to put the pad away – sooooo sad rofl.

He’s been coloured with Copics:
Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20
Hat:  E33, E31, E30 and Sienna Brown Prisma Pencil
Hair: E79, E74, E40
Greens: G12, G94, YG11, YG63, YG93 and Olive Prisma Pencil
Blues: B99, B97, B95, B93, B91 and Black Prisma Pencil
Spade: C3, C1, C0 Black Prisma Pencil, E79, E40

The blooms have been spritzed with me home made glimmer mists – loving that I can have them in any colour I need.  The little watering can charm and brow buttons I got off eBay, the gingham ribbon was in a DT kit I got a while back.

The picket fence is a Doo Hickey die, I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink then edged it all with Diamond Stickles.  The little punched flowers are done with the smallest retro flower punch and the pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The card is in my lil’ eBay shop
