Sketch Sat: Oakley - all boy!

I love sketch challenges and don't know why I've not taken part in any of the sketch sat challenges before! Well, better late than never! Here's my card for this weeks' sketch using another gorgeous, soon to be released, Whiff of Joy stamps. This one is Oakley on his lil' scooter and I think he is fabulous for boys cards.


  • Images: Oakley from the new release of Willow & Oakley stamps over on Whiff of Joy from 3rd Sep. The 'boy' word is from a studio g 99p mini set and I've hand written the 'All'
  • Colouring: Prismacolor pencils & Sansador (gosh it's been a while since I've used them and had to stop and think a bit as I've been so used to colouring with promarkers and distress inks recently!) added little bit of shimmer to the scooter and fun flock on his collar
  • Papers: Dovecraft 'masculine' paper pack
  • Others: semi-circle cut with fiskers circle cutter and embossed with cuttlebug folder. Fiskars threading water border punch. all edges have been distressed with some chalk ink. Ribbon and chipboard circles from stash.

I love how his sheepskin collar turned out with the fun flock, although you have to be careful you don't sneeze when your using that stuff, LOL!

Have a fab day and don't forget, it's only one more sleep until Oakley and his friends will be released ;) !!

Cards for boys are always trickier, I find. I've just be trying to do one for my nephew; he'll be 8 in a few weeks!
