Teenagers


Well as soon as I saw these new images from Kerry at Ladybugcraftsink I had to have them, We need more of these images, they are fantastic.

My card is for Kay a friend at work, she has twin boys who will be 15 on monday and wanted a joint card. I knew which two images I wanted to use, these are called Josh texting and mobile phone, I have combined them onto the same image and I am so pleased the way it came out. I have coloured with Promarkers and a little prisma pencil, matted to some teal CS then navy CS, computer generated the names and punched them out. The DP is from Forever friends and papermania, I added some red twine and a double button, die cut the 15 with my new Die-namics numbers and then added the computer generated sentiment and some card candi.

Kay loved it and so did everyone else so I think you may be seeing a bit more of these boys.
Thanks Kerry for bringing us these brill images, I look forward to your next release.
