My Little Schoolboy

Day 3 of Sneek Peeks
This cute little schoolboy is one of the stamps being launched on Friday by Crafters Companion.
He comes from the Paintbox Poppet range created by Christine Haworth
He was very tidy when he left home but as you know, Boys will be Boys, still he's managed to keep his apple for the teacher safe.

The image was stamped onto Neenah card and coloured using Spectrum Noir pens.I used Coordinations card for the plain coloured mounts

The greeting was created using a new range of stamps also being launched on Friday, which I think are going to be very popular as the words are interchangeable to suit any occasion and anybody.

The backing papers and all the other embellishments are printed from the CD.
The buckle and bulldog clip I glazed with a Sakura Clear glaze pen.
The buttons are made using the Epiphany Shape studio Round 10 and cut from coordination card.

Leann Chivers recommends that you stamp your image twice so you have one to try your colours on first, well I hadn't the heart to throw mine away so I included him on the matching insert which I again printed from the CD.

I love that there are 8x8 inserts available as this is my favorite size card There are also verses to suit every occasion which can be personalised,and if you want something different then you can type your own.

Thanks for calling by, and don't forget leave a comment below for the chance to win a Fabulous CD
Random draw from all the sneek peek comments on my blog takes place Friday morning.
It could be YOU!!
