Thumbs Up!

Happy 4th July!!

It’s time for a new challenge over at Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday – we’re very fortunate to be sponsored by Kenny K this fortnight, and our theme is, of course, Stars and/or Stripes!

I chose to use “Thumbs Up Kid” for my DT project this month – I won this image a few months back, but just haven’t had a chance to out it to use yet, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

I’ve coloured the image with Pro-Markers – I love the clear, easy lines of this cartoon style image, it really was a pleasure to colour!  Using the Silhouette, I’ve cut the image out, leaving a narrow border all the way around.  The background is a starburst paper by Megan Turnidge – for the moment, it’s my go-to background paper for boys’ cards!  I’m hoping you can make out the stripes in the background, unfortunately they haven’t photographed too well.

The sentiment and age were both printed directly onto yellow cardstock, then cut and layered, using the Silhouette.
