100% Boy

Today I would like to share this side step card. I know I said that it would be a while before I did another and now this is my third, even if my measurements are not perfect I have just winged it and they have turned out just fine. I was very pleased with the turnout of this card. I have put Edwin mounted on to this barrel and then added the ship that came on the DP on the very last step. I have been trying very hard to leave more white space on my coloring and I think that is one of my favortie things to do with the copics; that you can always take color away by using the colorless blender. 
 Here is a side view of the card ou can see how the clouds are on dimensionals. And look at that golden button; just perfect for this card; found it in my stash :0)

  13. Nice card!

    About the Summer Stamp kit: mine were a little wonky too. Thick on one side and thin on another. They usually are of a less quality then the ones you buy in the stores that are already mounted. They stamp fine though.

  14. Oh Wow, this is absolutely fantastic! Thank you for joining us for the monthly challenge at Crafters Companion. x
