Punch it Out at LLLC

It's Friday again, and that can only mean one thing. Inspiration from Team Friday over at La La Land Crafts! ;) I made this card well ahead of time, because surprisingly enough time has been on my side this week. Magic or what?! This week we want to see you use those..


in innovative ways.. or traditional ways. :) You need some inspiration?! Head on over to LLLC now to see what the rest of Team Friday have up their sleeves for ya!!

I've used Lil' Rocker Luka - isn't he a sweetie?! I love his pose and that cap is so cool. I've coloured him using a mix of Copics and ProMarkers..

Skin: YR000, YR00, E11, R00
Dark Greys: Ice Grey 5, Black
Greys: Ice Grey 5, 4, 2
Guitar: Ice Grey 1, 2, Blender
Blues: Cornflower, China Blue, Midnight Blue

I've only used two little slices of patterned paper from My Minds Eye Hattie collection, as I wanted Luka to be centre stage. I've stamped a sentiment from a Hero Arts set in Blue Bayou ink from SU!

As for punches.. I used SU! Decorative Labels punch to create the details around the circle. SU! Spiral Border punch down the right hand side. SU! Large Star punch.. for the stars and finally SU! 1 1/4" square punch to create the banner ends. I hope that gives you plenty of ideas! :)
