Video Boy

This weeks Sketch Saturday challenge is being sponsored by...

 each month they offer a fabulous $25 shopping spree in their store to our lucky challenge winner, will it be you this month?

Here is my card for this weeks challenge...

The image is 'Video Boy' by Mo Manning, As usual I have used my promarkers to colour him in, I originally wanted the tshirt a different shade of green, but I don't have the colours needed (I can feel a shopping spree coming on soon)
I also need to get a new warm grey 1 and blush markers, both of mine are on their last legs now.

The green paper used on the base card is from Provocraft's Bitty Scrap Pad called 'windswept'.
The blue piece is by NitWit Collections, I roughed them up a bit to echo the 3 lines either side of the sentiment on the sketch layout. Then handstitched over the top with navy cotton... and yes I deliberately wanted the stitches to look that bad! lol

The sentiment was handwritten, as were the white shapes on the black 'console' buttons and the number 13 in the centre.

My son has snagged this card for his friends birthday in a couple of weeks time. The following day will be his other friends birthday too, and Jake has decided to make the card for him using one of my own designs for a teenage card.

thank you for stopping by today, I hope you will have time to stop by and see the other cards made by The Saturdays, there is such a mix of themes and styles using the same sketch :)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges...

Squigglefly - Blue & Green
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Fairy Fun Fridays - snips and snails & puppy dogs tails
Sweet Stampin - for a teenager (YAY! I won!)
Totally Gorjuss - It's a man thing
