Happy Birthday Jack

Hi again i'm back with this weeks 

We have a fabulous sketch from our very talented 
Dawny P to follow and this week
we are sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp.

A bit of a different card for me this week
It's my sons birthday end of this week
and gosh he's 14.
He loves graffiti art and he is always
doodling his name in tag form.
So i decided to add some 
graffiti style letters on his card.
I looked through images on the Internet and 
came across this style, printed off the 
alphabet then with a light box traced it onto 
super smooth card  ready to colour with my
Polychromos pencils.
I noticed a lot of the art is multicoloured
and i love Red, Orange and Yellow together
and they are suitable for a guy.

I turned the sketch upside down i thought it 
would work better for me that way

The papers are from Raspberry Road.
The stamp is from a retro transport 
stamp set from Kanban crafts.
The buttons were all a pale yellow so i
coloured them with permanent marker pens
to make them match, and added contrasting wool.

I think i'm safe showing it to you all before he 
sees it he never looks on my page 
"It's all about cards, it's boring"
is what he said the one and only time he looked.
If it's got nothing to do with XBox,
BMX, skateboarding or camper vans
he's not interested.

Thanks for looking 
Take care
