Something a bit different today. I think that teenage boys are probably the most difficult demographic to make cards for unless they're in to football. Sue's Rubbernecker brand at Creative Expressions has just released 2 new stamp sets with Skateboarders featuring on them (they'll be on my shows on Monday). My son, Nathan, is 16 and he loves skateboarding - perfect for him!
Here's my first offering from the Skateboard Silhouettes Stamp Set -
Newsprint stamp using Jet Black Archival, the Chicken Wire stamp using Pumice Stone Distress Ink and the large background from the Skateboard Silhouettes Stamp Set using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I then edged the whole thing with Pumice Stone using Cut n Dry Foam.
On a separate piece of card, I stamped the Chicken Wire Stamp a couple of times lengthways using Pumice Stone. I then stamped the 3 silhouette images from the stamp set using Jet Black Archival. I trimmed the piece, edged it with Pumice Stone and matted it on to black card.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and edged it with Pumice Stone once out of the die. I cut a mat out of black card using Matting Basics A.
I assembled the card as shown adding a Faux Screw Brad in Antique Silver in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
