Sketch Challenge at The Townscrapper

TGIF and you know what that means!  It's time for another Townscrapper Challenge.  This week we have a sketch from the talented Nikki Fairbairn.  We were honoured to have Nikki and her daughter Zoe join us this week as part of our Mother-Daughter Spotlight.  Checkout the fabulous DT's creations as well as Nikki and Zoe's wonderful projects for the Sketch Challenge.
 For my submission, I used the new Victoria Case image, Soccer Mitch, which is exclusive to The Townscrapper.  I drew in glasses for Mitch with my Copic Multi-Liner and enhanced them with Crystal Effects.  Dimensional stickers were added (i.e. sentiment, soccer ball and practice cone) as flowers wouldn't have gone well with a boy card - lol - and I never really know what to do with buttons.  I need to work on adding buttons as embellishments.  I layered his leg and foot so it rested on top of the soccer ball dimensional.  The dimensional stickers were from a recent visit to the Dollar Store and I just love how they add to the soccer theme.  Papers are by Bella Boulevard ~ Skippin' Stones ~ and TPC Studios ~ Sunny Bunny Chicks.

Here's a close-up.  My nephew is so excited to be playing soccer for the first time this year so this card is for him.  Image coloured with the following Copics: E000, E00, E25, E27, E29, E50, E53, B000, B12, B14, B16, B18, YR31, YG03, YG05, G05, C00, C1, C3, C5, C9, Blender and Copic Multi-Liner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
