Teenage Boys?

I really like making male cards but teenage boys...wow are they difficult. This stamp seems to be my go to at the moment as have used pretty much all my other game images for this person already.  I have left the design simple and the embellishments I created myself with an MFT stamp, memento inks and a bit of glossy accents.

There are three stamps in this collection and this is the only one that up until now has seen ink, I decided that I needed to use all three before they went back in the draw so expect to see the others over the next few days.

The cardstock the image and brads/candy were all from the snippet folder as was the grey only the printed paper wasn't a snippet so I am off for a play on the swings at the Snippet playground.


Ingredients:
Image: "Boys Toys" Dimension Stamps
Papers: "DCWV Extreme Boys" 300dpi (site no longer trading)

Another great snippets card Amanda! Love the zingy colours you used - and so true about boys cards being really tricky, but you cracked it lately for sure!

Watch that parrot in the Playground!

Hugs, Di xx

I have a teenage grandson and this would be perfect for him. The control is always attached to his hand unless he's grounded!
