Introducing.....FRIENDS TO THE FINISH!
This sassy set features three tough chicks plus SEVEN super cool sentiments! The perfect set for all those amazing women in your life!
For my card today I'm featuring the boxer. My husband is really into boxing so I was really drawn to this image. I tried something a little different and tried to create a scene around my image. I picture my rock star boxer in the ring under the spot light.


I started by stamping my image onto Neenah white cardstock 80lb with Wicked Black ink. I drew in some lines with my copic liner hoping that it resembled a boxing ring. Then I started coloring my spotlight. I started with the lightest color Y04 and outlined how far the light would cascade out. Then starting adding my darkest color Y35 to the edges and blending in. I added the mat and just did dark shadows around the card. 

For coloring the image, I wanted to make sure it looked like the light was coming from above. I added the Y35 to the top of the head as that would be the closest to the light. I also added a few shadows on the mat as if the body of the image was casting a shadow (which it would be). 

I hope you enjoyed my scene today!
