The Outlawz Alcohol Markers Universal Children's Day Challenge/Tristan's Birthday Card

This week we are challenging you to make a card for a child, for any occasion. This was an easy one for me, since my great-nephew, Tristan, is celebrating his third birthday next Saturday.

I used a darling LaLa Land image, Outlaw Luka, for Tristan's card. I printed him on MICBC and colored him with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E33, E35, E37
Shirt/Jeans: B32, B34, B37, B39
Vest: G20, G21, G24, N2
Shoes: W2, W4
Trike: G40, G43, G46, N2
Tires: W4, W6, W8

I chose a sketch to use from Seems a Little Sketchy:

And I used DP from the Bo Bunny Zip-a-Dee-Doodle collection, distressed it with my Zutter, and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. Then I added some Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings, my own sentiment, and die cuts made with:
MFT Fishtail Flags Stax
MFT Chevron Stripes
Memory Box Vintage Bicycle

That does it for me this week. Only one card and one post. Amazing, isn't it? Be sure to stop by The Outlawz and check out the wonderful cards made by my talented teamies. And then, please join us this week! 

Have a great weekend!

    I said hi to the penguins for you and they said I must ask you why you dont fly to SA and visit them on the beach in Cape Town. They also said that the Cape has awesone home grown wines from the local vineyards and awesome top class restaurants to crit.
