Skater Ian

Hi everyone...I haven't been able to post anything for a little while as I've been making a batch of wedding invitations for a couple of friends but I've finally finished them - after a panic dash to the ribbon shop (and thank goodness they had what I needed!) I thought I'd celebrate by being creative and trying out a stamp I bought a few weeks ago and haven't played with yet. It's by The Greeting Farm and it's called Skater Ian. I hope you like it...

 I've had my first attempt at paper piecing for his hat, T-shirt and trousers (using some scraps up) and the rest has been coloured with promarkers. He's mounted on foam pads. The papers are some old DCWV ones called Retro prints (6x6) and the base card and matting are chocolate brown. I've added a gold peel off and some buttons from my stash. It's great to be using some of the stuff I've been hoarding for years. I'm seriously addicted to card making at the's a couple more piccies...

 I would like to enter this into the following :-

Thanks for visiting. I hope you've enjoyed your visit and would be kind enough to leave me a message. See you again soon...

Happy crafting
