Happy Birthday - Catch the bug

Thursday March 8, 2018
Today being Thursday that means at Catch the bug it's
Oldie But Goodie day (OBG)
I hope you like the card I made and you can find him in the Bugaboo store
This is my card using Boy balloon.. I started by taking a piece of dry wall tape (I saw this on someone's blog and loved it) so I tried it and love the tiny little squares. I used Ranger ink. I then added the Paper trey ink HB.. I added two tiny strips of Washi tape below for the boy to stand on. I then colored the image and added some stripes to his shirt, glossy accents to the glasses and Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the balloon and white gel pen to the face. I then fussy cut the image out and using foam dots to the back added him to the card. I then added a few clear dots to the background. I love that I made a masculine card.

I don't know what dry wall tape is, but I have got to try this technique. The background is really awesome. Great additions to your boy (shirt stripes, freckles, etc). Really great guy card!
