More than Super Bowl Sunday - Hambo strikes again!


I made this card the other day for my Son-in-law for his birthday which we celebrated yesterday.  Actually it was like the Super Bowl of Birthdays.  My DH, Son, 2 Son-in-laws, and my dauther-in-law all celebrate their birthdays within two weeks of each other.  So, we chose yesterday to celebrate their special days.  Throw in a few extra friends and lots of kids and we had a house full of people 

For the card I had this digital image from Hambo.  It is from their new character called Wee Henry.  After getting the image I wanted to have a background that was as great as the one the creator, Tim, had drawn on his original card.  So, I lightly sketched in something that I thought would work and colored it in with my pencils.  I had the background almost done (over a couple of days) when I found out that the original background Tim drew was available.  Drat!  That's okay.......I think mine came out pretty good too!  My inspiration for the flour bag came from the rice bag that they use in Farmville....Hee Hee!  Wee Henry is colored with copics, duplicated and layered to create some dimension.  I did find that you CANNOT edge your cut out image with copic markers.........it bled a little on Henry's ear.  Fortunately, it wasn't bad enough to ruin it!  I hope you enjoy.  I'll be getting a Hambo badge for the side bar shortly!  Hambo has a number of Wee Henry's now and the next card I'm going to do with one is a darling cupid!
