That's what little boys are made of….

I decided to delve in to the back of my craft cupboard recently and look what I found…..a gorgeous SWALK stamp. These are no longer produced by Crafters Companion, but I think I collected pretty much every stamp along the way, and I wasn't until now that I had the chance to use this lovely little boy stamp which i thought would be prefect for my great nephew's 3rd birthday.

Luckily I had a pre-cut stepper card at my disposal so it was nice and easy to cover it with some lovely bright backing papers and then colour the little boy to match with my Promarkers.

As you know, alcohol markers have long been my favourite colouring medium, and I have to say the Promarkers and Spectrums would be my pens of choice…between the two of them I probably have the complete spectrum of colour and then some!

So I had great fun colouring this little chap, and particularly enjoyed doing his hair this time, which came out just as I wanted it.

So that's my card for today, which I hope you like.  :-)

Of course there are some great challenges to enter this week, so here they are:
