I've got a little card here that I made for the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week AND for my nephew's 14th birthday coming up in June! The theme for this week's challenge was anything masculine - perfect for this!
My nephew is quite an incredible artist, he takes my breath away with the things he can create. So I wanted to make him a card that had a bit of artistic flare. Got a little messy with this one, but I kind of think it fits the bill.
Have a look:
I just used some water based markers directly on the 1 and the 4 stamps (Paper Smooches, Digits set), flicked a little water on them to get the colours to run into each other, and stamped them onto white card stock. (I was second guessing throwing the pink/magenta into the mix - his is quite a boys boy. But being an artist, I know he embraces all the colours, so I think he'll be okay with it!). After I cut the numbers out, I outlined them in a very thin tipped black pen. I used the same black pen to draw a frame around the card base. Then I went splatter crazy. I used the same colours that I used on the 14 diluted in water, and then added a squirt of Ranger Dylusions ink spray in vibrant turquoise and black. Then I adhered the crimped black banner, and the 14. Finished it off with the sentiment from Paper smooches.
It was a lot of fun to make this card! I'm really enjoying trying new techniques!
Hope you like it! And hope to see you again tomorrow!
