'Boys will be Boys'

Hello all,
wow I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine it has been amazing here this afternoon almost as if summer had arrived. Anyway I found some time to get another sample done for the Sincerely Yours show and I couldn't resist using this fab Mo Manning image 'Paul Texting' by Stampavie. It is so great to have something suitable for teenage boys.

I have used the fantastic blokey 'Oliver' DP's from Basic Grey and as always I have coloured Paul with my trusty Promarkers. Everything has been distressed with Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain and I added a little faux stitching and a heap of buttons for texture.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - #149 'Sponsored by Whimsy Stamps'
A Spoonfull of Sugar - #146 'Tons of Texture'
Craft Your Days Away - #17 'Spots and Stripes'

Promarker Colour Recipe:
Skin: Blush, Dusky Pink
Hair: Cinnamon, Cocoa
Hat & Jumper Stripe: Cardinal Red, Burgandy
Jumper: Pear Green, Marsh Green
Jeans: Blue Pearl, Cornflower, Midnight Blue
Trainers: Cinnamon, Cocoa
Bag: Pastel Beige, Warm Grey 1, Warm Grey 3

Anyway should have more to share with you soon.
Happy Crafting!
