You're Awesome - skateboard

Hello, bloggers today's card is all about the sport of skateboarding.

This card began as an A6 hammered card blank.  I cut some blue mirror board to make a mat slightly smaller than the card blank.  Next I cut another mat smaller than the mirror board one from white card stock, onto which I stamped the background of my card.  I used Creative Expressions 'silhouette skateboard' stamp set and the following distress ink pads faded jeans, broken china and tumbled glass.  I randomly stamped the stamp all around the card stock using my hand instead of an acrylic block.  Next using the mud splat stamp from the same set I stamped these in faded jeans around the background.  Using black soot distress ink I then stamped the silhouette skateboarders directly onto the background. With a dark blue ProMarker I edge the mirror board and topper card to blend in the white edges.  Finally I stamped the sentiment using black soot distress ink.  I then die cut it with Spellbinders 'back to basic tags'.  It was then embossed with the That Special Touch 'tyre tracks' mask leaving the spellbinders die still on the tag.  Whilst still in the die I then inked through with faded jeans distress ink and then snipped off the shaped tag hole part. The topper and mirror board where then adhered to the card blank and the tag attached to the topper.
