Can I go again?

Only a child or total nutter would ask this in my opinion, must be a sign that I'm gtting old or just don't like being cold and wet. This time over at Penny's we are sponsored by the very generous Lexi who has very kindly given eac of us a digi of our choice to work with.

 My son wanted another Christmas card for one of his friends so I decided he could choose the image. Once I'd got through to him that I wasn't making a story book with all the images he wanted he decided on this one called 'can I go again(Paulo bear)' as he said it reminded him of his friend, I didn't ask why though he did say his friend has modified his skateboard by attaching a 10cc motor on the back.

He asked if I could do it turquoise so I tried to keep to this brief, as soon as he starts earning money he will be in for a shock as I will start charging him, but for now when he buys me stamps for birthdays and mother's day etc thats payment enough along with that he thinks I can make anything. If he wants to keep praising me like that I'm not going to stop him and I know he appreciates what I make for him.

I decided to use a silver base card and took a little artistic lisence with the layout from friday sketches, hope they don't mind. The trees are another stamp addicts stamp judikins I think it's a cube anyway. I embossed them with turquoise aurora moonglow powder and coloured with turquoise promarker. The outline frame was left over from a Kanban card kit. I added more turquoise promarker, giltter sakura and stickles to the image and coloured the bear in ice grey.The papers, yes you guessed more magazine freebies.
