OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Transportation

I know that for most people, viewing a skateboard as a mode of transportation doesn't come readily to mind.  In our town, however, I frequently see young men using their skateboards to get around.  So when this week's Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown Challenge was to make a general card using transportation as a theme, I decided to break out a new 12x12 sheet of designer paper and make six cards out of it.

This is what the paper looks like:
And here are the six cards I made.  I'm including all six even though there are 2 of each skater and they are almost identical.


  • Image stamps from Impression Obsession stamped with Versafine Ink and filled in with a Copic marker
  • Sentiment Totally RAD from Verve
  • Sentiment  u r  and arrow from my stash - arrow filled in with a Copic marker
  • Crate Paper School Spirit - Geometry
