Make it Masculine or Feminine

I used Beate's weekend sketch to make these cards with my new Changito monkey stamp. Isn't he the cutest with gun?!?

The Girly Version

Colors: creamy caramel, pretty in pink, white

Stamps: Sporting Goods & Canvas BG - SU; Changito Plays Ball - Stampendous

Layout: Beate's Sketch

Accessories: circle punch with eyelet, paper piercer, ribbon, dimensionals

Techniques: faux stitching, sponging

Image colored with Copic markers

The bubble gum bubble is popped up on a dimensional. I didn't do that on the first card... I made a mistake in coloring and had to cover it up. But I like it!

The Little Boy Version

Color Challenge: blue bayou, soft sky, real red

Stamps: Sporting Goods & Canvas BG - SU; Changito Plays Ball - Stampendous

Layout: Beate's Sketch

Image colored with Copic markers

Accessories: large oval punch, paper piercer, dimensionals

Techniques: faux stitching, sponging

*It took me quite awhile to learn how to color with Copics. I've had a lot of help from friends, but now I've developed my own technique that seems to be backwards from the tradional way of using them. Watch for a tutorial in the near future!
