Tomorrow is our Grandson's birthday.  Tucker will be 6 years old..........where has time gone!?!?  My mother-in-law likes me to make cards for her great-grandchildren........this is the one she will be sending him.

The main image is a Penny Black stamp.  I fell in love with the cute little PB characters soon after I started selling Penny Black items.  I ordered this one a while back but hadn't used it yet.  I just love how cute it is.  I colored the figures with my Copic markers. Copic Sketch and CIAO markers can get into the tiniest areas.   After coloring the image, I lightly sponged SU Tempting Turquoise ink to soften the look.  It would have looked good mounted onto Tempting Turquoise card stock, but I thought the bright SU YoYo Yellow card stock would probably be a little better for a little boy.

Tomorrow I'll post the card that we are sending Tucker.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you will take a moment to leave a comment......I love hearing from you!
