The musician's birthday

     Happy Sunday all!  It's my turn to share some Mo's Digital Pencil goodness with you.  One of the young men in our church has a birthday today.  We have a large number of his extended family that are members and they are VERY musically talented.  I decided to create his birthday card with Mo's Johan.
     I wanted to create a bit of a fun background so I used a stencil and some texture paste tinted with Distress inks to create a brick wall behind him.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13
hair N3, N5, N7
coat and hat E31, E33, E35
scarf Y11, Y21, YR23
shirt B95, B97, B99, R35, R37
backpack G82, G94, G99
satchel E23, E25
belt and guitar case N3, N5, N7
jeans B93, B95, B97
boots E71, E74, E79
sidewalk W3, W5

     Here's the inside.

     Don't forget that we have started a brand new challenge over at Mo's DP2.  We have switched to monthly challenges so you have lots of time to play along.  We have an optional theme of "Green" this time if you'd like to use it or you can use our standard "Anything Goes".
     Be blessed!
