A Real Kicker ~

TGIF...maybe that should become my mantra!  lol  All the greetings I have for Fridays are so cliche!  I'll just use TGIF from now on ;o)  Cliche or not, it will suit my posts well, as I always welcome Fridays!!  Alyssa here with a little cutie patootie from La La Land Crafts - Soccer Luka.  This little guy holds a special place in my heart because just the other day, we signed my little guy up for soccer lessons.  This is such a darling stamp, I can see it being used for scrapbook layouts in the future!!
I used a sketch done by a friend for the layout - deconstructing jen.  I feel a little unnerved to have to tilt a main image, but I got through it when I thought about how off kilter my life has been with a 3 year old boy!! lol  (He stuck part of an action figure up his nose today and had to be taken to the dr. office!)

 I won't state all the obvious - but I do want you to notice his grass stained knee...it's just one of those little details that you have to add!  The soccer ball with the star rhinestone trail is supposed to mimic flames coming from his awesome kick!  I added a little depth to the already orange stars by sponging on Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick inks.  His skin is colored with E11, E13 and E15 for a Hispanic, Native American coloring or even a tan teenager on the beach!  lol
I chose this skin color combo because of the iCopic Challenge #41 - Skin Tones.  We want you to color skin tones out of your comfort zone!  I think we all tend to gravitate towards what we know best or will be able to use within our circle of family and friends...well, step outside the box!  Have fun and try something new!!  Then link yourself up for a chance to win :o)  Have a super weekend!! :o) lyss
