Girly-Girl - All Boy!!!

My projects for today hit both ends of the spectrum - all girl or all boy!!!

This card uses some adorable stamps by Art Declassified! This photo looking stamp of the ballerina is just so Girly-Girl! I combined her with this wonderful, lace looking paper by KI Memories and a big, pink Tulle bow.

I stamped the image with a black stamp pad. She could be finished with just that but I added a little bit of color and bling. I watercolored the girl with watercolor crayons and a watercolor brush and added some Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip to parts of the image. I love this glitter because I can put it exactly where I want it and it always adds some bling while letting the underneath color still show through.

Then on to the All Boy part, this adorable photos of our grandson who is now 6 years old. These are some of my all time favorite photos of him because he loves to be outdoors and he just looks ALL BOY!

The little journaling piece was printed from the computer and then I used a journal punch to make it look like torn notebook paper.
