He was a sk8ter boy.....
My sister recently posted some photos of my nephew, Noah, on his skateboard. As it happens, I had JUST received the Skater Ian stamp from The Greeting Farm. So, I finally got around to inking it up and.....here you go!
Whenever I see The Greeting Farm 's cute little Ian with blond hair I think of my nephew, Noah. I made this card for him to go with his back to school present. In the package he is going to find some "skull" adorned clothing (he just loves skulls/skeletons) so I pulled out my Skull and Crossbones Cuttlebug embossing folder and ran the grey panel through a few times to just cover it. Ian was coloured with Distress Ink (face) and PrismaColor Pencils.
And by the way, notice the CTMH Autumn Terracotta circle behind Ian - that was my dearly beloved's idea. I did not want just a plain white or cream coloured circle so looked at the back of the MVP paper I used for the background for a co-ordinating colour -- dearly beloved said the orangy colour would be good. I think he hit it on the head. Must remember to pester him when I am having colour "matching" issues.
The sketch for this card is Friday Sketchers Sketch #63.
