C4E30



Check out this Awesome Dude! LOL his name is Ian and when I saw him at The Greeting Farm I had to snatch him up cause my nephew is Ian and he likes skateboards too! come on now makes sense right?!?!?! He is colored with Copics and I did the skin a little darker than I normally do since I imagine he is out playing in the sun he has a bit of tan and bleached hair... I think I did pretty good on achieving that look in this one. I am practicing with the Copics and blending is becoming easier!


So this is my sketch card for Crafts 4 Eternity this week which also included making it a kid themed card. I used Basic Grey Recess Paper for layering along with some rust and kraft brown paper. The ric rac is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the arrow, the word and the octogon's are cut from my Slice! I used deckle Paper Shapers along the bottom strip of Kraft paper on the thinner line across the top there.

Hope you enjoy and give the sketch a try too! Michele comes up with some great ones and idk about you but when I have a sketch in front of me mmost times I get a lot more accomplished during my stamp time.

Fabulous card! When my son was a youngster he loved skatboarding. I kept telling him, the money I spent on skateboards I could have put you through college! UGH!

I love sketch challenges and color challenges. For me, that just about makes the whole card!
