LMM #1 - Boys Only

The new Little Miss Muffet challenge has now gone live, the theme: Boys Only. I can hear various uh's, ah;s, oh's  (lol) .... one of my first reactions when I learned about the challenge theme. It just does not seem to be so easy to create a piece for boys ... this is my guest design piece
May I introduce you to Alex, one of the Van Family Brothers from Little Miss Muffet coloured with Copics and colouring pencils ... I think he is quite cool in his t-shirt and jeans! The base for the card is a Kraft card layered with Echo Park patterned pape.
I created the brick wall background with an inky brick embvossing folder and distress ink 'walnut stain'. After the embossing I swiped Versamagic 'red brick' ink over the raised parts of the paper ... I was surprised how real it looks. If you think you can use this in your work, please feel free to use the image.
little tuckered stars, stamped sentiment from Betty's Creations 
the skull stickled with 'black diamond'
little add-ons with twine, pearl and staples

You find even more inspiration for Boys Only projects at the Little Miss Muffet blog, come and join in the fun, Petra.

The brick looks great as a background. Lots of tough embellies too like those staples.
