All Aboard For Birthday Fun

Today’s inspiration is for all those lucky enough to have little boys in their life. I discovered this adorable card on Watermelon Sugar Blog. I highly recommend visiting.

All Aboard

This card uses Papertrey Ink’s Train set. Katarina decided to go with water coloring on this cute choo choo, using Tombow markers. It’s nice to emboss your images that you are going to water-color so you don’t have to be super careful about staying “in the lines.”


The papers are from an old Cosmo Cricket collection, Biography 101 Little Boys which is not available anymore, BUT don’t  afraid to use what  you have on hand.

My hope is to inspire you to be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to try new things and most important to have fun!

Thanks for visiting and have a very creative day.
