Masculine cards are specially hard for me to make but, cards for teen boys.....well, that is even harder! I saw this image on the Mo Manning digital store one day and it immediately captured me, this could very well be the photo of my 15 year old grandson, sitting in my living room, playing football or space invaders and stuff like that, with his "sustenance" by his side, LOL!!
I really don't like to buy digital images, my printer sometimes acts up and I don't know how to size the picture to make cards so, I went to see if there was a rubber version of it and, YES!! there is so, of course I bought it. This image is called Video Boy and it's also available in RUBBER .
I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil, I really love how the colors blend so easily. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from Power Poppy's Sassy Succulents .
I just love this young boy's expression, his untied sneakers, his hair all messy, the concentration and grin on his sweet face, just so beautiful.
As in all masculine cards, there can't be to much "bling" or ribbon and bows so all I added was a button and a very inconspicuous linen thread bow. I changed the sketch just a bit by moving the line to just under the picture, I really didn't want to cover any part of this image, I truly hope it's ok.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
Again, not to much stuff, just a simple sentiment and a balloon. Here are the banners that inspired this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
