Happy Birthday, Jesse!

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday, and I thought I would share the card I made for him. He is very into music, and also loves comic books & anime, so when I came across this image of the Teen Titans by theravenflysby while browsing on deviantArt, I knew it would be perfect for his birthday card. If you haven't checked out deviantArt before, I highly recommend it. Just make sure that if you find an image you like and want to color, you check and see if the artist has given permission for people to do so. Not all of the artists on there do.




Aren't they cute? The image was colored with Copic markers (including the new colors I got for Christmas! Woo!), and layered on black and SU Rich Razzleberry card stock. I've had the Razzleberry paper for months, and this is the first time I've actually used it. I have to say, I rather like the color. :) I finished it off with a bit of black ribbon from my stash.

I kept the layout very clean and simple because, a. it's a guy card, and b. the image is really too large to leave much room for any embellishments. LOL!

Copic markers used:




I'm entering my card in the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge (New), and the Charisma Cards challenge (Celebrations).

Thanks for stopping by!
