Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails....

Create a card or project that is just for boys! How you do this is totally up to you! The possibilities are endless!
SPONSOR: My Favorite Things
PRIZE: $25 Gift Certificate

OK, so you recognize this little fairy girl from my last card?  I chose her from MFT for the LAST challenge (out of this world)  a while back and didn't realize I had my sponsors mixed up!  Had I had my brain in tact, I would have chose a more boy-ish stamp for this weeks challenge.  WELL, I used her anyway for BOTH challenges (it is a CHALLENGE after all!) 

I made the card dirty and grungy to try for a more masculine look.  I don't know if I pulled it off but I rather like the card. 

I used my SU! markers and colored pencils and Pearl Ex watercolors to give her shimmer. The background paper was borrowed from a friend who got it on clearance.  A little faux stitching, inking and distressing and it goes from BLA to FABULOUS!!
I'm starting to rethink some of my forgotten & dusty ol' patterned papers.....
