Wildflower Kids - No Girls Allowed ~

Hello!  I'm back, along with my fellow Stamp Sistahs, with the release of the new Wildflower Kids sets.  Jen, the absolutely fabulous and wonderful artist of Wildflower Kids, has come out with two fantastic sets: No Girls Allowed and Pretty In Pink.  As usual, these sets are available exclusively from the Stamp Happens shop.   On to my little skater dude...
I had to use this little skater guy.  Not only do I know that I will use him tons because of my little monster, but I grew up with a brother {and his buddies} that was a total skater kid - this little image kind of strikes close to home.

I used some Basic Grey paper as my jumping point.  I then decided that I would take the easy route - I paper pieced his shirt.  I wiped off the little crossed out circled image in the center of his shirt because I was going to add something else and decided against it. Just think of the possibilities - skulls, little sayings, sports stuff - his shirt could add so much more to him.  I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the word window punch and hand trimmed a border...hence the sloppiness!  But then, it is a boy card after all, right???  The little sentiment is kind of like a little skateboard I just noticed - ha!  Love it when it works out that way!!  I used the sketch challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges to tie it all up!  Hope you liked my little peek!  Please bop on by the other ladies blogs for some more eye candy:

Awesome! I love that you paper pieced! I really should do that... And what a great idea to add other things to his shirt! I really like that BG paper myself. The Boxer collection is so boyish! Great job!
