SWALK Slugs and snails... and puppy dogs tails!

Hello there it's Amy once again. I had soooo much fun with this project. I have to say I was a little scared at first because this is the first time I have made an album like this but I couldn't resist when I seen this adorable SWALK stamp. I think I love it because I have boys and it really is hard to find things that are "boy-ish".

This is what the "Slugs and snails..." "...and puppy dog's tails!" SWALK stamp looks like. I love the detail on these stamps and the face is my favorite.

I used Memento ink in Black Tuxedo to stamp the image onto white cardstock and then used my watercolor pencils to color in the image. I am not the best at it but I try and I think it looks pretty good.  I love the little "boo boo" on his forehead.

I then adhered the image to the striped background cardstock. I inked up the edges using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  

This is what the album looked like before I put it all together. Again I inked up all the edges using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo just to make it look a little finished and I also like the vintage look.

I used some pop dots to pop up the stamped image on the front of the album. Put a button on the front with a little yarn. This is the album all put together.

This is really gorgeous girl! I just love that little boy image. I totally agree with you about there not being as many cute boy images out there. That is one of the beauties of SWALK stamps!
