I've made a simple little boy's birthday card with a C6 kraft card blank and the freebie papers along with LOTV's sail away boy stamp. I've coloured with Copics and edged all my layers with E44, why I never thought of using the broad tip of the pen for edging, goodness knows! After watching the Copic demo on Create and Craft tv last week, I changed my skin tones to E50 & E51 with a touch of E01 for blush and E11 for shadow. The reds are R24, 27 & 29, the blues are B93, 95, 97 & a touch of B99. His hair and shoes are E33, 35 & 37, and the hull of his yacht and socks are YR30, E30 & E31. I've used W0 & W2 for shadows.
As the freebie stamps are acrylic I've stamped with a dark blue Versamagic chalk ink, chalk inks work best with the cheaper clear stamps. To finish I cut the bunting from the freebie paper pack cover advert as the designs are smaller, fixed with a little string, a few gems and the diecut Nellies Choice buttons.
The Papertake Weekly challenge is for true colours - the red, white and blue! I'm not sure of any other challenges I might enter with my card .. .. please let me know if you think of any. I'm playing catch up again .. .. what with not being able to get on line at the weekend and then a slow connection today, it could take me a while!
