I kept this fairly simple.. cut him out using a nestabilities frame in my cuttlebug, then I colored using copic and pro markers. I went around the edges with some clear, glittered nail polish. I love the shimmer and texture it gives and dries instantly. I cut the edges of the red mat using fiskars decorative edge scissors. I printed the sentiment on my computer and matted that on a nestabilities label die cut. I used a black and white checkboard background paper that I got from DCWV, that I was able to pick up in tj max for a steal. Lately, i've been finding paper crafting things in Marshalls and TJ Max.. but it's usually a hit or miss. I also just found some nice papers in Amazing Savings
