The Battle Continues...

We made it into the second round of the Greeting Farm's Royal Battle! The challenge this week was to make an easel card and it was my week to make the project. I started out by picking my image, and I couldn't decide which one to use, so I used the head of Pirate Anya and the body of Skater Ian! Then I decided she needed a little friend so I added another Skater Ian. Everything was colored with Copic markers. I added some Glossy Accents the skateboards and some silver bead accents on the wheels and in the corner pieces. I pulled out my favorite paper pack right now, Origins from Basic Gray. The center decoration behind the skaters is from Spellbinders and the conner accents are from Sizzix. On the bottom panel, I used a sentiment die cut from MME and a border punch. 

Here is the side view:

And a close up! We would love it if you would go here and vote for our card, our group name is The Embosslits.

I want to thank my friend and team mate Angela, after I was done, I  emailed her the pictures and she added the watermark for me.
