Be Happy Boy

Both our sons had birthday parties to go to this weekend.  For one I had a card on hand, but for the other I had to do a quick here it is.  Super simple, great for an 11 year old boy.

I took the Extreme Dirtbike set and did the dragging technique on it to give it the look of motion in black ink (looking at the catalogue I see he's supposed to be upside-down...oh well, I'll pretend he's just coming out of his crazy move!).  I added photo corners and some large brads for that "motor-cycle" look.  I used the rough texture wheel in Artichoke on the make card sort of a tire-tracks look.  A bit of ribbon and some piercing...that's all, not even patterned paper!  Great when you need a really quick card.  :) 

It's spring break for us here, so I'll be spending the week with my family.  Look for me again on the weekend with something creative to show you! 

Recipe:  Stamps:  SU - Extreme Motorbike, Rough Texture Jumbo Wheel, So Many Sayings;  Ink:  Basic Black, Always Artichoke;  Paper:  Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Basic Black;  Accessories:  Photo Corner Punch, Large Brads, Dimensionals, Piercer, Checked Ribbon, Tab Punch

You are right on with the way you stamped this image -- I've seen some guys do this move at the PNE at the Bike Show :D I'm sure it was a huge hit with the birthday boy(s) too :D Have a blessed Easter!

Love it! I didn't know he was supposed to be upside down until you said something, so no worries there. I get the concept of the drag technique but haven't seen it done or tried it, gonna have to now!
