Whiff of Joy DT - City Girl sneak peek no 2 meets A spoonful of Sugar

I have another sneak peek for you from the Whiff of Joy City Girl collection which is being released on 4th February. Although this one is a city boy!! Little Oakley is all grown up and handsome! This stamp is "Cool Oakley". I had such fun with this card! I am entering this into A spoonful of Sugar's challenge as it is "freestyle" this week!

Oakley has been coloured with copics, the edges of the image are distressed with brushed cordoruy distress ink.

I have added an eyelet and some jute string to turn it into a jeans label!

The stars are from Tim Holtz grunge elements and I have sponged them with brushed cordoruy distress ink and then rubbed on some copper luster rub on. The jeans are made entirely from blue textured cardstock and lots and lots of sewing on the sewing machine! I have made the sentiment into a jeans label by stamping onto some card from an actual jeans label (love recycling things like this!) and distressing the edges and more stitching.

I nearly made another card to put Oakley on because once I'd finished my jeans I just wanted to leave them as they were LOL so had to take a picture before I covered them up. You can even give the recipient their birthday money in the pocket!!!!
One more stamp to show you from this incredible collection and I'll also have a little candy for you so check back tomorrow!! Thanks for looking x
