Alcohol ink numbers

I was asked to make a card for a 22 year old male that liked skateboarding,
so I hope he liked it!

The board is by Jolees popped up with foam squares.
 I diecut the numbers from silver metal sheets and coloured them with alcohol inks, then painted a thin layer of glossy accents on top to help stop the colour scratching off.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday has a challenge to use the letter N.
I've gone with N for numbers.
Simon Monday Challenge Blog

Seize the Birthday has an anything goes theme.

Virginia's View Challenge is all about texture.
I've used the heavy duty embossing folder and distressed it with black soot and pumice stone to highlight the details.

Jolees skateboard; PTI number dies; metal sheet; alcohol inks; Heavy Duty embossing folder; distress inks; glossy accents; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
