Birthday Boy

I created a birthday card for a little boy using a Dustin Pike digital image.
I printed the image and coloured it using Lyra artist pencils and Gamsol.  I used a white card base and layered it with dark blue card stock and patterned paper from the K&Co Hopscotch Designer Mat Pad, stitching some of the layers together.  I then used Staz On ink to colour a piece of drywall mesh and adhered it to the card.  I matted the image with the blue card stock and stitched around it as well and adhered it to the card with foam adhesive.  I printed the birthday boy sentiment and the ticket onto paper from the Hopscotch pad.  I adhered the sentiment  under the image on the right hand side.  The ticket I placed under a Kindred Creations chipboard star that I painted orange, and a button I threaded with orange embroidery thread.
