Skateboard Andy (Pink Gem Designs DT Card)...

Hi everyone. Thanks for your get well wishes regarding my children & the nasty flu bug that's swept through all four of them. I thought things were looking up at the weekend, and my youngest Daughter & eldest Son were able to return to school on Monday. However my eldest Daughter has been running a temperature still, so have kept her off.....and my little man is really poorly! He hasn't eaten since Sunday, and is just lying on the sofa. He refuses Calpol, and gags if I try to make him have it.
.
Anyway, on to my card. A sneaky peek of a new polymer stamp, 'Skateboard Andy', due in at Pink Gem Designs later this week. You may have already seen this little chap on the new decoupage sheet here. The sentiments are also by Pink Gem Designs. See the full range here. I really love the calender one, where you are able to mark off the recipients Birthday...fab!

I partly coloured the image using my Copic markers, then paper pieced and decoupaged the rest. All the fab digi papers are by Pink Gem Designs, here.

The lovely big shape that Andy has been mounted onto was cut using a 'Go Kreate' die. I also used my 'Brick' Creative Expressions embossing folder...which I think is fab! I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink and sponge dauber to lightly sponge the embossing and make it pop! I used my Martha Stewart zig-zag punch for the border.

I will enter this into the following challenges;


Ladybug Crafts inc.....card for a child

CRAFTS 4 ETERNITY.....use polka dots

Simon Says Stamp.....animal antics


Delicious Doodles.....spots or stripes


Crafty Emma Challenges......bold & bright

.
Well thanks so much for looking...back later to have a nosey at your blogs all being well!
