Hambo Stamps Wee Henry Karate

I have a fun Hambo Hoedown card to share with you today!  

If you've been playing each week you've received this cute digital stamp set in your e mail to play along in this weeks challenge - which is to use any Hambo Stamps stamp/image and torn paper.

I pictured Wee Henry breaking bricks using his awesome karate skills and knew I had the perfect Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder to help me pull that off.  I inked the edges of my torn paper with Copic R59, added a ribbon tag for my sentiment and black organdy ribbon to mimic Henry's black belt and headband.

I used Copic markers to color Wee Henry:

Skin - E000, E00, E11
Clothing - N1, N3, N5, N7
Torn Paper - R59

I hope you'll have time this week to play along in our Hambo Hoedown!

My card is also for our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge - making masculine cards.

Love this fun cheerful card that reminds me of my brother when he was doing martial art shows. Fun! Popped by Via MIM.
Love n hugs

You chose a great image - really fun! What I like best is that torn and brick embossed background! Now that is a GREAT touch as if he is breaking a brick. Leaving the wide tear open against the Kraft paper is perfect - and I love the black "belt" ribbon! Can you tell I like your card?
I'm so glad you joined the challenge at Craft Your Passion and I hope to see you again next week!
