Skateboard dude....


Here's another card using one of the fab new images from Digistamp Boutique - this is Josh & Skateboard and he's available here on his own or here as part of one of the 'offer of the month' sets of images.  There is also a lovely new set of Winter Coco images.

This is one of those cards where you have an idea in your head and it doesn't quite turn out how you expected... I feel like there's something missing!  Ah well!  I've coloured lovely Josh with promarkers, with a teeny bit of added shading using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador, and then cut him out.  The papers are downloaded, but I printed them ages ago so I'm not sure where they're from - possibly freebie ones from Summer Driggs.  Cardstock is coredinations, buttons are MME, and the lettering was cut with the Sizzix 'night & day' alphabet.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

  7. What a great card- I think it works! You're right, the papers are Summer Driggs- I have them too! I think a skateboard counts if the way my son used his scooter is anything to go by- most definately a mode of transport, it went everywhere and was the best tenner I ever spent! Thanks for joining our transport challenge at Cards for Men.
