My grandson turns 10 today, so I want to wish him a very happy birthday! He spent some time with us this summer, and one of the things he liked to do was practice his skate-boarding on the walk in front of our house. For that reason, I thought he'd like this card:
The image was cut from the Dude! cartridge, and I used my ProMarkers to color some parts of the bottom (skin-toned) layer to add some more dimension. I actually prefer to do this when I can, rather than cutting out all those tiny pieces and trying to adhere them together properly.
I liked the blue and green patterned background paper except for the odd red centers on some of the circles. To change them, I simply colored them with a purple marker (to better match my skate boarder) and then added some Diamond Glaze on top. These centers look nearly black in the photo, but they truly are a deep purple.
I do hope Sebastian has a spectacular day! He is growing up in Germany, so we don't get to see him as often as we'd like.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
