Let's Roll, DUDE!

Back in April, I attended Scrapfest in Kitchener. I stumbled upon a new to me stamp company, "Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps". They have so many unique stamps, I just had to purchase some including the, "Let's Roll, DUDE!" set.

I went outside my comfort zone and created my own background from scratch by drawing a retro cartoon inspired background. I coloured the background with my Copic markers. To add more depth to my  background, I used my Distress Inks and stencilled on some funky patterns overtop of my colouring.

I fussy cut out my skater kid and popped him up with foam tape and die cut out a speech bubble and stamped the sentiment on it to carry through with the cartoon feel of the card.

Copic Markers:
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, E50, E93
