Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #41 “Kids Want To Have Fun”

It is with sadness that this is the last and final challenge post for Open-Minded Crafting Challenges as the blog is closing.  It’s been such a great pleasure to work with this team and the blog organizers Susan and Vicky.  I’d love to have this final challenge go out with a BANG so please enter a card and make this send out a good one.

For our final challenge we are focusing on kids.  The “Kids Want to Have Fun”  challenge will run through Friday, July 31st.  There are lots of prizes from our generous sponsors so I again, I hope you’ll join us for the very last challenge at Open-Minded Crafting.

Here’s our sponsors this week and the prizes they are offering:

ImagineThat_zpsfeff7c51Prize: 3 Digital Image Sets

LiaStampzBadge_zps22eea511Prize: 2 Digital Images

Stamping BoutiquePrize: 4 Digital Images

slsPrize: 3 Digital Images

For my card today, I chose an adorable image from The Stamping Boutique called “AJ The Race Car Driver.”  I began by coloring the image with Copic markers.  A tip to coloring black hair is to lay down a layer of blue before adding the gray colors which makes a great highlight.

For the background, I played with liquid masking using Miskit by Grumbacher.  I created the racing marks using Tim Holtz “treads” stencil after Miskit was dried.  I had some challenges pulling it up off the paper so it dulled my Copic colors a little, but I think it was worth the effect – what do you think?

The paper is from Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” 6 x 6 collection and the circle dies are from My Favorite things.

Can’t wait to see what your “Kids Want to Have Fun” card looks like!  Vroom, Vroom!
