Our Challenge for you at The Paper Shelter this week is ‘For the Boys’ I’ve chosen this  cute little clown and coloured him in greens and blues to keep with the male theme. Just perfect for a little boys Birthday don’t you think?

For a closer look:


My image  was printed onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E35, YR24, YR21, YR20 clothes: BG78, BG75, BG72, YG23, YG16, YG11, G20 I have added some buttons as juggling balls for effect.

I’ve limited the embellishments as I didn’t want the card to be girly. Don’t forget to pop over to the Paper Shelter Challenge and take a look at the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT and have a try at our ‘For The Boys’ Challenge for a chance at a terrific prize
