By the River...

Hello friends! Continuing with our boy & circle theme this month here's another card using LOTV's 'By the River'. Look at that sweet innocent expression on the little boy's face as he watches his little boat float down the river. 

It's a water scene, so I felt the need to water color this stamp. I used my Tombow markers, some Distress inks and a water brush to quickly color it in on hot press water color paper. 

The papers are from an old Cosmo Cricket collection, 'Little Boys' I think it's called. I kept the rest of the card very simple, a bit of herringbone embossed paper for texture and a bit of soft sky ribbon tied in a knot. I also added some little dots around the edges of the card with a Souffle pen, kind of like faux stitching. 

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day!

Stamps: Lili of the Valley 'Down by the River', and 'For Him sentiments'
Ink: Memento, Distress
Paper: Fabriano w/c paper, PTI, Cosmo Cricket, Core'dinations
Tools & Accessories: Tombow markers, Koi water brush, McGill circle punch, Soft Sky ribbon, Herringbone embossing folder, pinking rotary cutter, Perfect Layers tool, Souffle pen
