Hoedown Time

It's time for the Hambo Hoedown.  I swear that I always wait until the last minute.  I actually missed posting my Hoedown card for the last two weeks!

This week's theme is Splatter:

Paper-Provo Craft, Image-Hambo Stamps

That cute little boy is a Hambo Stamps freebie.  It's called Wee Henry Bongo and can be found HERE.

Doesn't that splatter look great?  That's because I cheated.  My paints are in storage.  Instead of digging them out I used markers.  I just held the marker by the very end and swung the felt tip against the paper to get that droplet look.

Every time I color Wee Henry, he ends up wearing green, orange, and tan or a blue and red combo.  I have no idea why.  So I guess I need some inspiration.  What color combos you like for boy images?

  1. Great idea for the paint splatters with markers! Love your cute card and the cute free digi from Hambo. I've made cards and missed challenge deadlines a few times myself. I think for boy cards I lean toward reds and blues with some brown and grey. It often just depends on the image so I'm thinking your Henry likes to wear the colors you put on him. :) Thanks for joining us for our September Anything Goes Challenge on Digi Haven!
