A boy card today from the shows on Monday. I will share as many of the cards from the shows as I can. Tracey Laughton made some of the samples for the Skateboard Silhouettes and Anything is Possible stamp sets. Sam Poole made a couple of the samples from the Urban Life and Urban Beats stamp sets.
For the background, I spritzed some Milk Card with Black Knight Acrylic Misting Ink from the Winter Garden Set. Once dry, I inked through the Retro Squares Mask with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I also stamped one of the stamps from Sam Poole's Urban Beats Stamp Set using the Brushed Corduroy. I wrapped some Black American Seam Binding around the card and added some Antique Copper Faux Screw Brads.
I spritzed some Milk Card with the Dark Spice Acrylic Misting Ink from the Winter Garden Set and dried it. I then dusted it with an anti-static bag and stamped the ghetto blaster image (from Urban Beats) using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I tore around the image and then inked with Brushed Corduroy. I coloured part of the image in using Dark Spice Matt Drawing Ink from the Autumn Shades Set. I stamped the image agin and just cut out the cassette and mounted that onto the main image using 3d foam pads.
I stamped the 'No. 1' from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I coloured in again using the Dark Spice Matt Drawing Ink and then cut out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One. I inked around the edges with Brushed Corduroy.
I tied some Black & White Baker's Twine through some buttons from my stash.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Julia, another great card using these stamps. They are just perfect for guys, but as you said on the shows, could be for girls as well. Love watching you demo them. BxReplyDelete
Morning Julia, A great card today, I love all the colours you have used and the 'ghetto blaster' is a brilliant stamp, I love the compilation of this card. Ideal for a male but equally great for a girlie, when done in girlie colours.ReplyDelete
