A Distressed Card- hope it doesn't cry......

In keeping with my recent resolution to make some boys cards for my card box, I give you......

 A boy's card!!! Ok, Ok, stop the applause please, you're embarrassing me....... The lovely little boy is a Lili of the Valley stamp, coloured with Promarkers as usual! The horizontal strip of backing paper is from the V&A Quilts paper collection, a pad of paper I just had to have, but which I've found quite hard to use. The vertical strip is made by crumpling paper,  swiping Tea Dye Distress Ink over it then spritzing with lots of water. Everything (including the card itself) is inked with Tea Dye, or Old Paper or Scattered Straw Distress inks, or all 3, and the dirty looking bits are inked with my new favourite colour- Pumice Stone. 

I'm entering this into the following....

Tuesday Taggers- It's a Man's World (well,a boy's in this case, lol)
Crafts and Me- Distressed
Passion for Promarkers- Anything goes
Papertake- Sketch
Spoonful of sugar- Celebration (birthday card)
