Skater Boy Birthday*

Good afternoon everyone! It has been a busy day, but I've managed to finish a card :)  This morning I had to run Bailey to school. Then we had to take my bike to the shop for it's service. We aren't picking it up until tomorrow. Then we had to bring the car to the shop. It was due for some sort of electrical upgrade from a recall. And since we had some issues with it yesterday going all weird on us, we decided we would go ahead and bring that in as well today. I'm just waiting on call from them. Since then, we came home on Kevin's bike and I've been trying to get this card finished :)

Have a great rest of your day everyone! I'm back to coloring now:

For this card I've used two images from Little Miss Muffet - Candy Floss Crew Quentin and Graffiti Party. I've colored them both with Copic Markers and I have done a small amount of layering. The papers are all from a stack that I got from Michael's a while back. I dry embossed the black paper with a Sizzix Jim Holtz Alterations embossing folder. I added some white ink to the inside so that it added those white bits when I pressed it. The white made it look like cement! LOL  I added the twill at the bottom, stamped Happy Birthday onto it and added the four black pearls. I used the same papers on the inside and then additional black pearls to tie it all in.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Quentin Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13; R20
  • Quentin Skull Vest: W3, W5, W7, W9; E40
  • Quentin Skateboard: W7, W9; B34, B37, B39; R22, R24, R29
  • Quentin Shorts: W3, W5, W7, W9; B91, B93, B95, B97
  • Quentin Shoes: W5, W7, W9; R22, R24, R29
  • Quentin Shirt: R22, R24, R29
  • Quentin Bandaid: R20, R22
  • Quentin Skateboard Wheels: YR04, R24, R29
  • Quentin Socks, Shoes, Skulls: E40, E41
  • Quentin Eyes: YG05, YG09, G19
  • Quentin Hair: Y11, Y21, YR23, YR24
  • Graffiti Letters: C3, C5, C7; BG45, BG57, BG49; W5, W7, W9; YR02, YR04, YR09
  • Graffiti Drips: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Graffiti Backdrop: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09
