Side stepping sk8r

The challenge at Craft Your Passion this week is RED,WHITEBLUE – It’s Presidents Day.We have the fab Mami Doodles and Robin’s Nest as our sponsors!.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I made a 5 x 7 Side Step card using Nick with Skateboard from Mami Doodles.He’s been coloured with FlexMarkers with touches of white gel pen to add highlights.I’ve fussy cut him and placed him over a die cut star,with the white one being embossed.The sentiment has been printed on my Brother P-Touch.When playing around with it I found a rather nifty frame section.I’ve embellished with paper thread and white brads.Unfortunately the right hand side seems a little dull and shadowy in the pic.I think my camera tends to pick the most prominent parts to home in on.Still at least it shows the image off well 😀

Sentiment : Printed on my Brother P-Touch Label Printer
