Skater Ben

Hello, everyone! I have a card made using an image from Whiff of Joy Stamps to share with you today.


I used the lovely Skater Ben for my card. Love this handsome little boy! =)


Ben is stamped and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. I trimmed him out after coloring it with Copic markers.


I stamped Hero Arts Envelope Pattern on the card card base using VersaMark, but it isn't showing up very well. The patterned paper is from the Fine and Dandy True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

That's all for now. Have a lovely day! =)




Thanks for stopping by!

Love all your cards and especially the ones you make with lots of white space. These are the most difficult for me to do! I am always amazed by your creativity :)
