Hey Dude!

Hi guys! 
Today I wanted to share with you this super fun card I made for my husband's birthday this year. He loves to surf and has been surfing for a long time, so I figured surfer Ian from The Greeting Farm would be the perfect stamp for his card. I am happy to say that, although my husband usually really likes my cards and everything I make him, he really really LOVED this card and could not stop talking about how cool it was, and how perfect it was for him. After smiling, all I can say is: mission accomplished :)

I colored Ian with my Copic markers. I can honestly say my coloring has gotten better, and the proof is in the hair of this little guy( and if you saw my hair coloring before you can understand what I'm saying). And look, he looks tan! I was so excited that I finally got a good formula for tanned looking skin...before,  every little guy or girl I tried to color and make look tanned, looked yellow or too pink. I think I finally found a good balance of color and he looks good. Yay for me!
The word "surf" on the card is a wood chip I colored using acrylic paint and distressed with my Black Soot Distress Ink from Ranger. I added Crystal Stickles to it, to add a little shimmer.
 I used designer paper by DCWV, some twine from thetwinery.com, and some tiny red buttons I found on one of my flea market runs.
