So, my godson turned 6 about a month ago and I am finally getting the card I made for him uploaded. The entire family are karate enthusiasts and I am such a bad godmother that I don't even know if the belt should be white, whether it should have "tips" or if it should be another colour altogether!
Still, I adore this digistamp by Mo Manning, which you can find here. When I first saw it, I just had to have it - it was perfect for my godson. It was my first time colouring white - everything I've done with my Copics has been using colour, not just the greys to create shadows.
The Copics I ended up using were:
E53, E55 and E97 for the hair; E01, E02 and E95 for the skin; W2 and W4 for the gi (uniform) and ground, with a little of the E97 added to the ground as well. I added white gel pen dots on his cheeks.
I layered onto a piece of distressed look paper from the 6x6 paper pad "Ebony & Alabaster" by Black Market Paper Society, onto another sheet of white printer paper and then onto black cardstock. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up set "Think Happy Thoughts" and the number 6 is from a set I got too many years ago to admit to, from Sunday International. I added the black metal staples, distressed the edges of the patterned paper and (although you can hardly see it) the large black circle of cardstock, and I was done.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar: Happy Birthday

Today I went off to the Quilting and Craft Fair with a girlfriend - spent too much, had a lot of fun and came home with lots of new things to play with. So I'm going to wander off and see how much mess I can make, creatively!
Until next time,
