Valentine for my son

Happy Valentine's Day!

This image is the second one I purchased from Spiral Whisper named Skateboard Kev. (The first image was Wizard Dan.) I really like this one too. My DS dreams he can skateboard like this! LOL! Perhaps one day, he's only 5.5 y/o now. Anyway, I wanted to participate in the Copics Colour Challenge #1, hence the reason for these colors; B28, V06, YR07. (Now I don't actually own these exact colors but I was able to procure close-enough colors with my 40% from Hobby Lobby.) Young boy + bright colors = fun card!

Beate has restarted her Week-end sketch challenges! Yeah Beate! This card is in response to WSC#68. I did change it from a long card to a regular A2 card as I thought with the size of this image it would work better.

I sponged on some gray to give it the feel of street dirt! (Check out those knees.) My DS asked what that "stuff" is on it. I guess it didn't dawn on him. Oh well, maybe next time. The base is Apricot Appeal. The blue stripes is from an old package from SU I think called Sweet. The red circle is from my Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter. (Notice how when embossed with the CB folder it now looks like a basket ball! Oops!)

I used my clear Sakura gelly roll pen on the red top of the skateboard. Looks great IRL, I'm not sure you can really see it in the scan.

Well, now I need to run and make a Vday card for my MIL.
