The glorious weather has continued today with wall to wall sunshine. I just hope it carries on into next week as it is my daughters graduation next week. We will be travelling up to Manchester on Tuesday and staying until Thursday. The graduation ceremony is on the Wednesday and we are really looking forward to it. We have booked to go to a lovely Mexican restaurant in the evening for a celebratory meal. My sister and her husband are coming over and both grandmothers are coming with us so a real celebration. I am such a soppy devil I will probably cry but they will be tears of joy.
Anyway, it is my brother in laws birthday next week and this is a card I have made for my nephew to give to him.
The image is Skateboard Andy and can be found here at Pink Gem Designs. This is the precoloured image and I just fussy cut it out. For the background to mount it on I used a mica mask stencil (crackle) on black card. I used versamark and mica powders to stencil through the mask. I then distressed the edges and mounted onto some more black card. The checkered paper was in my stash box and I must have had it for at least two years (shame on me lol). I added some black card and ribbon across the centre. The sentiment was done on the computer and I distressed the edges with some acrylic paint and more mica powders. The final addition was the card candy.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. Hopefully I will get chance to do a bit of hopping around blogland later. Time has been slipping away from me.
