One for the Boys!

Today's card is One for the Boys! Masculine cards are difficult for me, but I love this image by Kenny K. Its perfect for those punk little fuckers that you love to hate! :-) Just kidding!!
This was the first time that I've ever done a sk8ter boi card. :)

Also, the first time I got to use my new Spellbinders nestability to create the die cut!

I love how the die turned out and I was able to create a concrete look using silver metalic paper (don't try to distress it! the ink will never dry!) and layer the papers to create depth.

 I even had the chance to write in creamy white on the brick wall.  Originally I wanted to use my silver sharpie for a spray paint effect, but I couldn't find it.

I cut the little skater dude out after coloring him with my copics, popped some rivets on the die cut and used some dimentional stickies to pop the little guy off of the brick wall, leaving his hand just just be glued. I also put some dimentionals on the back of my die cut.

A simple card for a cool little kid who can't get enough of skating. :)
