Mad For Markers - Australia Day Colours

No Way!! Thursday again?! And its the third week of January already!

This is not good news for me, only 4 more sleeps until my youngest starts big school. Oh I am so not ready for this!

Moving right along, before I have to break out the tissues, lol. I have a card to share with you today for the current Mad For Markers challenge, which is a colour combo to use either Red White and Blue or Green and Gold.

For my card I have used Kenny K's digi image "Skateboard".

I really wanted this image to be 3D and pop off the page so I printed it twice and cut out the boy and the skateboard separately and stuck them on the the first image with some 3D tape. I tried to take a photo of it for you but it's a bit hard to see.

I even managed to decorate the inside of the card this time too.

Copics used to colour this image were:

Skin - E00, E000, E1 ,R20 and R22
Clothes, helmet and skate board - B21, B24, B26, B28, R24, R27,R29, C1, C3, C5, N0, N1 and N3

I used my red Spica pen to colour the red star on the front and the ones inside of the card.

You still have time to submit your project to our current challenge so come on, show us what you got!!

Head on over to the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog to get your daily dose of inspiration and to link up your creation. I can't wait to see it!!

For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.

Wow Michelle that is such a funky fun card, LOVE that skateboard boy image and love the star/circle medallion. FAB bright colour scheme.

My youngest starts school on Monday as well and I am torn between being absolutely devasted and being happy for her. Good Luck to you for the first day of school Michelle.

That is a cool card for boys and men. Perfect colours too. And look at the wonderful inside.

I visited Jill's blog - so good that I did. So much to learn there. And she visited me too.

Hope your boy is recovering well. How is he coping with his restrictions?

Michelle, this card just pops! This is going to make the recipient very happy. That birthday ribbon embellishment is just too dang cute. Awesome work, my friend.

By the way, I have no idea you to make buttons. Maybe I should make mom show me ;D But then she would expect me to make my own. Better leave it the way it is...LOL! Hugz, Cheryl
