Jake Skates

Here is a boy card that I have made using my "Jake Skates" Stamp set from Visible Image.  It's amazing value at £11.99 as you get the main image of Jake skating and various other stamps including 3 stars, a large star, mesh/distressed stamp, sentiment saying "awesome dude!" and a skateboard.

I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers.  They are feeling slightly unloved at the moment since I got some Graph'it pens so thought they could come out to play.  The backing papers are from a Wellington paper pack that I got in a sale.  I have stamped the star stamp over the edge of the striped backing paper, stamped the mesh/distressed stamp around the image and then used the star stamp on some chipboard corners that I coloured with the same blue Promarkers and then added Versamark and added two layers or embossing powder for some shine.  I have kept the embellishments to a minimum on the card and just added the ribbon, sentiment off the stamp sheet, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and the decorated corners.
