This Is What Life Is All About

I had so much fun colouring up Skateboarder Josh today,I even found myself searching out Skateboard shops to get an idea of how to colour up his deck (get me, lol!) I ended up with giving it a non specific flame type colour effect,I might try something else another time, maybe some transfers or stickers, my daughter thought that this looked fine though.

I followed a sketch again,not something I generally do but I enjoyed adapting it to suit my needs.

I embossed both of the strips using different embossing folders and rubbed them over directly with a TH distress ink pad, I distressed the edges of the rest of the papers and even the twine to take away the white,clean look.

I'm enjoying using the stapler at the moment, I even stapled a couple of die cut stars together. A LCI sentiment and some inky stitching and my card's complete. (I'll add the name of the paper pad I used tomorrow)

Skateboard Josh is from the new Teenager digi range at Ladybug Crafts Ink, where you can find 14 different images altogether, suitable for boys and girls.
The Cling Stamp Sale is on until Saturday if you fancy grabbing yourself a bargain.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
SSS153,choose, I  followed  SSS81,
Clear It Out, Sports/leisure, stars,
CCC8, Kraft,
DTC155, Birthday,
Karen's Doodles 110, Tough/Cool,

Thanks for stopping by,
