OWH NSD Challenge - Hey Dude

I am following the Operation Write Home NSC challenges today and on Paula's Blog she had a challenge to use a sketch and make a kid's card.  I used Bonus Sketch #1 from OWH.  For my card I used a new stamp I got yesterday at Hobby Lobby.  It is Skateboard Kiddo by Stampendous.  I stamped him on some X-Press It Blending Card with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink.  He is colored with Copics and Promarkers.  I paper-pieced the skateboard by stamping it on some wood design paper from MME Fiddlesticks 6x6 paper pad, cut it out and glued it on the stamped image.  I inked the edges of the image panel with some SU Bashful Blue ink, and inked the sentiment panel also.  I created the sentiment on my computer and it is mounted on foam dimensionals. The DSP are from MME Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy 12x12 pad and are textured and shiny, although it doesn't show up in the photo.  The white CS card base is Canvas Corp. Heavy Cardstock and the mats are SU Early Espresso.
 
That's it for my card.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your comments.
 
Happy Stamping

  2. What a fun card! The image and sentiment are perfect together. Cards for boys are not among the easiest to do but you really did a great job with this one. The paper pieced wood is terrific! Thanks for playing in my challenge in the VCMP this weekend.

  3. LOVE!!! And I so need that stamp. I weep that now that I've moved back home to the Pacific Northwest, I no longer have a Hobby Lobby, but since kids' cards are what I mostly make, I'm going to go online to find that one! Wonderful image, sentiment, and papers. You are going to make some boy's day! And I'd say that even if you didn't spell your name correctly. LOL
