100% all boy ~ Prima Sketch Challenge with My Creative Sketch!

I LOVE Prima products!  How about you? If you do, head on over to My Creative Sketch and check out the sketch challenge they are having! I used my February Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook for my entry to the contest. This kit is so full of beautiful papers and embellishments I had a hard time cutting into them!

I cam across this photo of my dear hubby when he was about 6 yrs old and just knew I had to scrap it!  I don't do alot of masculine pages, so I have to challenge myself at times!  He is so cute here, and I am happy to announce that he has since grown into his ears! lol  Shhhhh!

 I needed to do a bit of work restoring the photo, but I think I did an ok job considering I am very new to that! Lots of edge distressing happened here with my Zutter Distrezz-it-all, and inked edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink!

This is the sketch you will find at My Creative Sketch, created by Kim Keane. She makes amazing sketches!  Thanks, Kim!

I actually used a bunch of my stash of embellishments here. The cogs and chicken wire are from Dusty Attic, and I used my Rusty Butterfly technique on them, and the flower I made from the Tattered Floral die from Tim Holtz and a printed paper bag. The rub-ons are from the kit.

I fussy cut the bicycle out of the paper and inked the edges and topped it with Rock Candy Distress Stickles from Ranger, then popped them up with pop dots.

Here you can see the masking I did with a Tim Holtz mask, and a close up of one of the rub-ons.

 I fussy cut the bird and used Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint on it, then used Helmar's Liquid pop dots for dimension.

Thank you all so much for stopping by, please leave a comment so I know you haven't forgotten about me!  Hugs!
