Singing Al

This is my second posting today.  This card was created for Allsorts Challenge Blog.  Week 52 Birthdays. I thought I should make a birthday card for a boy because it is so much easier making cards for girls.  I used a lovely stamp by Nutshells called Singing Al, it reminds me of my son Michael so I coloured it in, in colours similar to what Michael wears.

To create this card I used Stamps: Nutshells Singing Al.  Inkadinkado Rockstar.  Anita's Happy Birthday.  Cardstock: White hammered, brown.  Papers: DP Dovecraft Masculine, orange, gold.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Versamark Watermark.  Colouring: Copic markers E000, E00, E11, R20, E25, E29.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Sakura gel pen Stardust #700.  Dies: Ellison Thin Cuts Guitar.  Punches: Martha Stewart Gothic Arch. 

Hints and Tips
To make the microphone in his hand shiney I coloured it grey then added a layer of Sakura Stardust clear gel pen and waterbrushed over it.  This Sakura Stardust clear gel pen has many uses it is also good for adding glitter to fairies wings.
