A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - A Card For a Child


It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this time our theme is "A Card For a Child".  I used Skateboard Andy for my card, the Pink Gem shop is full of images for those tricky boy's cards, my seven year old son gave this card the seal of approval, declaring it "cool".
 I used my Promarkers to colour the image, using only greys, with the exception of skin tones, adding silver gel pen to the stars on the skateboard and Andy's clothes.  I used a small, SeeDees star stamp in the corners of the topper to echo the stars in the image and add a bit of interest.
I kept the layout quite simple, using a couple of strips of Papermania Capsule Collection Liquorice Sherbet papers, and a Craftwork Cards sentiment, but made my "white space", black, for maximum impact.
To embellish, I added a trio of die cut stars, cut with Xcut dies, and some Papermania glazed gems.

  I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
