On a different note

Pin It
I have been busy with sketch challenges I thought it would be good to throw in something different.  I needed a birthday card for a boy and was inspired by one of my boys shirts to put something together.  I thought I would give you a little more of an idea into how I go about making my cards.

Once I have the colour sorted I start with the stamp images that I want to use.  From there I dip into my colour drawers to find embellishments that I could use.  So the creating begins.  For this one I started with building up the layers with the grunge stamps and then added the words with ink and then embossing. A little stitching and finishing touches - Done.

Colours: basic grey, going grey, green galore
Stamps:  all about me (kaiser), grunge me (PTI)
Finishing touches: stitching, black embossing powder, stone bakers twine (the twinery), washi tape, brad and anchor, button

Such an awesome idea ! I have to give it a try, very inspiring...
And your card is really great (although it's so hard to make cards for boys), love the colors and the design.
