That's what little boys are made of.....

Hello all!
                 I'm back with my second posting of the day and this one is for the current challenge over at The Octopode Factory which this week is all about the boys - just in time for Father's Day.  I chose to make my own background by randomly printing the words "slugs and snails and puppy dog tails" in a variety of texts and adding a few grungy digital brushes for interest, using Adobe Photoshop Elements. I then printed the Octopode digi The Kid over the top of the text, coloured him with my Copics and added some grunge with ink splats and smudging around the edges, tearing a couple of the corners as well.



           I would like to enter this on to the challenges at Copic Marker Europe , Milk, Coffee , Paper Crafting JourneyCrafty Creations and Simon Says Stamp.
