Challenge Winning cards

Boys and their toys...

I often get asked to make cards for people, usually kids, with special characters on them. In the past I have done everything from Hello Kitty to Peppa Pig but this request really was a challenge...

It's an odd looking thing isn't it. It's called 'Trigger Happy' and it's a Skylander - and that's all I know about it!! I don't know what I would do without Google. I managed to find a website showing how to draw these things and I captured an image from there.It's coloured as usual with Pro markers in various shades of yellow and orange and I've kept the layout simple using pale lemon cloudy effect paper and black matting. The font is called 'Prime Minister Of Canada' which is such a weird and wonderful name.

I've entered this into these challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (optional use lemon/yellow)
Passion For Pro markers  - Boys and their toys   

Thanks for visiting
