"Little Men" cards for Swap

I am participating in the "Man" cards swap on SCS hosted by my friend Jen. One of the categories was Little Men Cards. So here are the two cards that I did for this swap,

The first one is also for the Copic Color Challenge #57 - to use the colors G99 (Olive), BV08 (Blue Violet) and E59 (Walnut). This stamp is the Birthday Boy from Stamping Bella. I stamped it on PTI white CS and colored with copics. Used some Copic Spica Glitter pen for the bows and hat. Patterned Paper is from KI Memories and CS is from PTI. Sentiment is from {ippity} set Life's Little Moments.

The Second card uses a Digi Image from Pink Cat Studio called Billy Snowboarder. I just loved this stamp. I colored it with Copics and cut it out with the Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities. The paper is from SEI and it is actually feels like fabric. It is beautiful. Some ribbon corners completed the card. I left out the sentiment as the user can add whatever sentiment they wanted for this card. This card is pretty generic and can be used for Birthday or for Graduation or for a sports day etc.



I added some Glossy Accent to the Snowboard just to give it some added dimension. But for some reason the copics smeared a little when I added the glossy accent. I probably should have heat set it before adding the glossy accent. So, my dear swappers, sorry about that.

I tried to get a close up shot of the snow board so that you can see the glossy accent, but it is not the best depiction.



Supplies:
Stamp - Birthday Boy from Stamping Bella, Billy Snowboard Digi Stamp from Pink Cat Studio, Life's Little Moment from {ippity}
Paper - PTI Aqua Mist, White, Enchanted Evening and Lemon Tart CS, SEI and KI Memories Patterned Paper
Ink - Memento black, Copics, Rangers Distress Ink Faded Jeans
Other - PTI Enchanted Evening Ribbon, Nestabilities, Scallop Border Punch, Glossy Accents
