Reese's Skateboard...

 Grandson's Birthday coming up - not till late October, but I found this image from Mayze Art that I think is perfect for him.  I have RARELY had any card done two months in advance - I will probably lose it of forget I have it!  
He is of an age where I must be careful not to have anything girly on it... so this is for "manly men" only!
[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • A2 size card base
  • Image colored with Copics and matted with the solid brown CS after wrapping it with twine.
  • Used a Micron pen to doodle the helmet's graphics.
  • Buttons threaded with twine and knotted on top
  • Two more coordinating DPs rescued from stash and layered on the card front.
  • Inside uses leftover papers from the front.
