I know what boys like...

Does anyone else remember that song except me? "I know what boys like, I know what guys want, I know what boys like, boys like, boys like me, nah nah nah nah nah!" Eighties music, YUM!!!


Anyway, that is not quite where I was going. I was actually refering to the fact that I love Halloween because of all the great releases, ie. paper, stamps, ephemera. While we don't celebrate Halloween in the traditional/commercial sense, I love the Halloween stuff because most of it ROCKS when it comes to making cards, pages and OTP projects for boys! Here are a couple of 'boy' cards I have made for my big boys to use for some of their mates birthdays. BTW, I was also playing with UTEE and Opals!! Heellllooooo, how cool are they???!!! So happy with the drippy effect!!  It took a while but I have it down to a fine art and here is a tip - it doesn't involve a melt pot!!!  I layered a bit of black UTEE on the already melted Opals and then reheated it all to get the top of the bat wings. Loved this and am definately going to play with that a bit more, think that effect could really look gorgeous with the right colours and the right pattern!!






Take care of each other,
see you soon.
