Skateboarder Josh

The boys were with Nanny and Grandad for the day today, so I managed to play with my new digi-stamp - 'Skateboard Josh' from DigiStamp Boutique. I didn't have a recipient in mind for the card so there's no sentiment, but I like it as it is.

Josh is coloured with Pro Markers, except for his clothes which is paper pieced. He's mounted on various layers of cardstock (12 layers in all!!), and the papers used are both from the Papermania 'For Him' 8x8 stack. I popped him up on foam dots and added some ribbon from Papermania also.

The inside is built up in the same way:

Thanks for looking :)

365 Cards - Day 62

Todays challenge over at 365cards is 'Age is just a number' so there should be a number of some sort on the card. This was a bit of a challenge but after thinking about it for a bit I came up with this card:

I've made one similar before - the numbers are wooden and about 8.5cm tall. I covered them with paper from the K&Co Sparkly Sweet stack, and sanded the edges. The other layers are also from this stack and they are mounted on purple cardstock. I finished the corners with half pearls, and added a panel inside for the greeting. These photos show the card front on and the inside.

Thanks for stopping by
