A Boy and his Turtles

For my card today, I have used this adorable Henri playing with turtles Bubba and Milo image from Stampavie.  This was stamped on watercolor paper, and I colored this with the great Distress Ink Markers and the Tim Holtz Water Brush - Detailer Brush Nib.  The sentiment is from Stampavie's Celebrate sentiment set - I love all the sentiment sets.  I bought every single one of them as soon as I saw them in the Classy Cards 'n Such store.  I used a piece of burlap behind the stamped image to give this a rustic, masculine feel.  There are no flowers nor ribbons on this card because I'll be giving this to my husband for his birthday.  :-)  He doesn't care for all the frou-frou stuff!  LOL

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Delightful Challenges - Fabric, Fiber & Trim (I used burlap fabric.)
Great Impressions - Animals (There are turtles on my card.)
Here Come the Boys #33 - Boys Toys (Boys love playing with frogs and turtles! LOL)
Bloggers Challenge - Add Texture (I used burlap fabric.)

The colors of markers that I used on this image are:

Tattered Rose - skin
Peeled Paint - grass, turtles
Crushed Olive - grass, turtles
Spiced Marmalade - flowers
Vintage Photo - hair
Stormy Sky - overalls
Tumbled Glass - sky
Shabby Shutters - grass, turtles
Scattered Straw - shirt
Brushed Corduroy - hair

What a lovely card - the burlap framing is perfect with the dungaree-boy image! I collected Sarah Kay stickers as a kid so they always make me smile!
