New Challenge #87 at Glitter N Sparkle

I can't believe it is Sunday again.
Amsterdam was totally AMAZING.
I completely walked my poor leg off,
If I ever go again I think I might take the wheelchair.
I found plenty of attractions, beautiful architecture,
and gorgeous canals, but wish I could have seen more. 
And I am still recovering from it 5 days later lol.
Wouldn't mind if I had been drinking alcohol, 
but hardly a drop touched my lips.
One thing I didn't find was any Arts And Crafts shops,
bet they are all outside the Centre of Amsterdam.

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Bugaboo who are offering
7 Images from their store

My project for this week is:-

Kidz Boy Puppy Digi Stamp 
from Bugaboo
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used a pre-cut  
Scalloped Edge 14.5cm Square Card
(Jellybean Crafts)
And covered it with a 14cm Square cut from
a Textured Mid Blue Card

On top of that I Off-Set a 12cm Square of

Boy Blue Paper
(Text Prints - The Paper Stack, Die Cuts With A View)

Next I printed off the image for this project,

on White DC Paper.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Skin -                Vanilla
               Hair -                 Burnt Sienna
               T-Shirt -             Cool Grey 1
                                        Cool Grey 3
                                        Duck Egg
                                        Cool Aqua
               Jeans -              Denim Blue
               Shoes -             Cool Grey 5
               Dog -                 Dusky Rose
                                        Cool Grey 5
I then fussy cut out my Image,
and added to my card at an angle.

Using Tuxedo Black Ink

I used the Rubber Stamp
Typography - Brother
(Docraft - Papermania)
and coloured it in using my Promarkers.
               Writing -            Royal Blue
                                        China Blue
                                        Denim Blue

To finish off my card 
I added 3 Blue and White Polka Dot Candies
(Candi, Cardwork Crafts),
a metal Bone Brad 
and a Football
all which I decoupaged up for a bit of dimension.
