Birthday Boy on his Bike


It is my turn to host he new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and I chose Children's Playtime as the theme. Any image of a child or children playing is what we are looking for. I used an image which was one I used in 2014 for my first magazine feature in Making Cards. I tend to use red and blue for boy's cars so I challenged myself to use yellow instead.
Image - Pink Gem Josh on Bike
Medium - Copics
Papers - MFT sweet sunshine
Sentiment - LOTV
Dies - MFT stitched basic border, Cuttlebug stars (a very old one I suddenly remembered I had and haven't used for years)

Challenges
The Cutie Pie delightful digis 
The Ribbon Girl anything goes
As you like it Favourite colouring medium (I love Copics. I used Promarkers for a few years but prefer the quality of Copics for the colour blending and vibrancy. I don't dabble with other mediums preferring to keep using just Copics as practice makes perfect.)

I am going to a craft sale in aid of charity at lunchtime. They have been given boxes and boxes of craft products and they are selling them today so I hope to pick up some bargains.  Well it is for charity!
