You Are My Hero

Hello! Today's card is showcasing papers by October Afternoon and stamps by Mama Elephant. The idea behind the card came from a sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog. It's a simple sketch which allowed me to make the card quickly and easily.
The sketch doesn't require a whole lot of paper or layers so it was easy to come up with something. Although it is simple I feel as though you really have to find a focal point to pop off the page to catch the design teams eye. I decided to make my stamped images the focal point and they are just so cute.

This little boy just melts my heart. He is so adorable even when he isn't colored. To make him come to life, I grabbed some browns and blue Copic Markers and colored him in very simply. I did a little bit of shading but with the images being small there wasn't too much shading to do. After the coloring was done, I die cut both the images along with the rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs. I colored around the outside of the rectangle with a green Copic Marker to give it some added dimension.

I placed all of my papers down, popped up the rectangle piece with foam tape, added the sweet little boy with additional foam tape, stamped my sentiment and finished off with some green sequins. I also rounded the edges at the bottom.

I love how the turtle is looking up at the boy almost telling him that he is his hero. Precious!

Hope you have enjoyed today's card. As always, supplies will be listed below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I will see you back here later on this afternoon with another card showcasing a much different color palette for another card challenge.

Have a great day!
