SKATER IAN...

Happy Monday All! Hope you had a wonderful and productive weekend! Here's my Skater Ian card I made from the images that Chalsie of Paper Kisses was so super sweet to send me! Thanks again Chalsie for your RAK ... I REALLY appreciated it!


Here's a closeup ... don't look too close because Ian looks like he has a bruise on the left side of his head because Sister is still learning how to color with her Copics. LOL!!

After seeing the glaze that Jen used on her ice cream cone, I remembered that I had a bottle of that glaze and was hoping it wasn't all dried up because it has been YEARS since I last used it. Thankfully it was still in liquid form so I added dimension to Ian's hat. Thanks Jen for triggering my memory!

Don't look too close at the picture because you can see my terrible coloring ... man, gotta take some SERIOUS lessons!! Boy it really looks like Ian has a huge bump on his head or some serious acne action going on. Sigh...

I was happy because when my son Travis saw the card, he said "Wow, cool card Mom!" Hee hee...

I just some new stamps from TGF, so will be playing with them next. Have a great week girls and thanks for stopping by!

Ian is so cute and cool! You did a fab job coloring Kyoko! I love the 3D effect on Ian's cap and to get rid of the blemish, lightly go over the spot with your colorless blender and re-color...that should help.

YOU GO GIRL! Awesome card! Linda is right, you are way too hard on yourself....I think you did a FAB job! Love the glaze effects. Shoot...I still haven't done anything with this stamp. The only time it saw ink was when I inked it for you. lol! I recently got three shipments of new stuff and haven't even taken them out of the package yet! Gotta get my butt crackin!

Ohh how cute Kyoko... I think you did a marv job on the coloring part hehehe. I think if it really did look like a bump it will still make sense since Ian skates hehehe maybe he might have fallen hehehe and bumped his head... hehehehe Happy Monday to ya...
