My little Bonze is a pet name for my nephew Aaron who will be eight next week - I know
TMI (too much information), but it wouldn't have
made any sense if I hadn't told you now would it!
I wasn't going to blog this card at all as it is
a bit personal, but it is nice to have a record of
cards made to look back on and as a reference.
The background is a white core cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder then lightly sanded (yes, I've been watching the Pick of the Week on Create and Craft TV too!)
The wording I printed off onto plain white card and outlined with Promarkers, then cut out and stuck on.
The main image is a Stampotique rubber stamp
which I stamped, cut out and coloured with Promarkers.
I didn't think My lttle Bonzer Boy would appreciate the funny looking
character that is 'Heart Shirt', so I enhanced his face a little - and
added some hair (more of the scarf I use coloured with Promarker).
Aaron's has beautiful blue eyes and really long eyelashes
so I'm justifed in making this look a bit girly!
I don't know if he'll approve of the hair style I've given him though!
Topped off with a die cut crown from Sizzix/Alterations Bigz die
'Heart Wings' and a few gems added.
Thanks for looking!
