Magnolia Down Under Challenge #15 - All About a Boy

I knew exactly what I was going to do for this challenge - and got it done ahead of time for a change!! This week's challenge at Magnolia Down Under is "All About a Boy" and I bought this wonderful car stamp from Alota Stamps with Edwin in mind! How perfect is it for the men in your life!!! I had expert advice from my 10yo car fanatic son on where to use my silver glitter gel pen for the chrome - you should see how it sparkles IRL - a finish any man would be proud off - LOL. My son's only criticism was that I should have clipped Edwin's wings NOT glittered them up with Dazzling Diamonds - ah well - he'll have to put up with his mum's love of bling! The "Eddy '09" number plate was my daughter's contribution - but the possibilties are endless!

The background is the gorgeous new SU Gratuitous Grafitti stamp inked up in River Rock - so perfect for boys! The "tyre tread" in the middle of the sentiment is from SU Circle Circus. The car windows and lights have had Crystal Effects added - it really is amazing how much this card shines! The star brads are from the SU Hodgepodge set and the Real Red strip has had Real Red ink thumped onto it directly from the ink pad - I LOVE the texture this easy technique adds!

Don't forget to pop over to MDUC and check out what the rest of the DT did - and we look forward to seeing your entries too!!

What a super cool card, Debbie! Your many details really make this special. And what guy wouldn't be in heaven with a car like that (ergo, the wings on Edwin)! I love all the glittery chrome. Well done!

Dang, the weekend is nearly over for me. Why does it always go so fast?

Fantastic card Debbie - I loved it when I saw it the other night. You've put so much detail into it and I agree with you, it looks so much better IRL where you can see the glitter and shiny effects.

(I also love the way you receive input from your family - it's nice to know they are interested in your creations!)

debbie, your card is stunning. The car is just sooo... perfect for Edwin. Love what you did for the chrome effect. Your colouring is always wonderful. Yeah, I'm also always tempted to clip the wings from Edwin and Tilda's images. LOL.
