Hey Dude

Hi there.  Today I’m sharing a boy-themed card using Mini-Remix Boys from The Greeting Farm.  Boy cards don’t come easily to me, but this set certainly makes them easier and more fun.  Just check out this cutie patootie on his skateboard and his adorable pup!  Love them!

All of the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copics (colors listed below), and cut out with my ScanNCut2.  To have the boy standing on his skateboard, which is a stand-alone image, I first stamped the boy, masked off his shoes, and then stamped the board.  Originally, I had colored the board green, but didn’t like how it looked next to the grass, so I added some orange on top, which created this cool wood color.  I’m so pleased with how that turned out!

To create my background, I masked off the top half of some Bristol Smooth paper and ink-blended with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  Next, I masked off the ground, placed MFT Stamps’ Radiating Rays stencil down, and ink-blended with Mustard Seed.  After removing the stencil, I used the negative of a circle die-cut as a mask and filled in the sun with more Mustard Seed.  For the road I ink-blended with Black Soot on a separate piece of Bristol paper, which I die-cut with a stitched border die.  I used a light blue Copic marker to fill in between the rays and added blades of grass with green markers.  I flicked some water over my background pieces and blotted it with a paper towel.

I die-cut the background pieces with Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Rectangle dies before adhering them to a white card.  The boy was popped up with foam tape, and the dog was glued flat.  I added some shading under them with Copics and stamped a sentiment from Mini Remix-Boys in black.  To finish the card, I added some Zig Wink of Stella to the board and sun and some clear Nuvo Drops to the board and the pup’s nose.
