Card for a Boy

Good evening. I'm cutting it close with this one!!!

Firstly I want to apologise to anyone who's eyes do the hokey cokey without them when looking at this picture. I had a headache after making the card looking at those stripes!

I have had this stamp for about a week and finally got round to having a play. It's one of the new Manga stamps from the Secret Crafter. Although it's not my son's birthday until July he loves this image and I thought it would fit perfectly with the Simon Says and Passion for Promarker challenges this week. I coloured him with Promarkers and used a Pink Petticoat paper for the background.

Thank you to Dawny P for her advice on fair hair. She is a star!

Lewis's favourite team is Aston Villa who play in Claret and Blue. I had to improvise a little with the football strip on this one but hopefully it works.

This is not at all my best work and I am a little disappointed with it. Hopefully the DT at Papertake Weekly will look past this and at some of better work when considering my GDT application :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
Challenge 1. Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Challenge 2. Passion for Promarkers - The Young Ones
Challenge 3. Simon Says - Card for a Child
