I find making cards for little boys quite hard. But recently I bought a really cheap and cute little car stamp and so I have been doing some playing around with it and this is what I have come up with.
This is actually my second project using copic markers. I have a really limited number of about 10….and I am in no way an expert at shading, but I have had fun experimenting.
To make the cloudy sky I made my own template of a cloud and then used my sponge daubers to sponge the sky on and when the clouds were removed, it revealed the white cardstock underneath. I also used Glossy Accents on the car windows to give them some dimension. I had a go at making my own Happy Birthday embellishment and I had the blue star button in my stash of buttons and it fitted in perfectly.
Supplies: Regal Craft White Card, Kaisercraft car stamp, Versa Color ink (black, blue, brown), sponge daubers, copic markers, Kaisercraft patterned paper, round cardboard tag, Hero Arts alphabet stamps, blue star button, twine, 3D foam dots, Glossy Accents, green and white cardstock, black marker pen.
With this card, I don’t have a sun stamp 🙁 ….so I made my own sun with some of my punches and then added glossy accents to make it shine. Not the best result, but it is passable. The background was stamped with a Kaisercraft background stamp with clear Versamark ink.
Supplies: Regal Craft White Card, Kaisercraft background stamp, Versamark clear ink, Versa Color black ink, copic markers, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, 3D foam dots, Glossy Accents, Bazzill card stock (turquoise colours), black and white card stock, Pebbles Inc Happy Birthday rub on, Carl Craft punches (circle and star).
I am also working on my entry to the Scrapbook Boutique card making challenge…check out the competition here – entries close this Saturday the 21st of August 2010.
Until next time…
