skateboard ~ You're Awesome

Hello bloggers today we have a card for the men and boys with skateboarding on it.


This card began as a white hammered DL card blank.  First I cut a black mat slightly smaller than the card blank.  I then cut another mat from white cardstock.  With the white mat I made my own background using pine needles, iced spruce, peeled paint, fired brick, mustard seed, dried marigold, walnut stain, aged mahogany distress inks and Creative Expressions 'silhouette skateboards' stamp set which I randomly stamped using the stamp in my hand and inking the details i wanted only on the card.  Next I cut another mat and stamped the silhouettes using walnut stain adn aged mahogany distress inks.  I then inked the edge with vintage photo distress ink.  The mats were then put together and adhered to the card blank.  Next i stamped my sentiments using walnut stain distress ink and the same stamp set.  I then die cut each sentiment with Spellbinders 'back to basic tags' die set.  Whilst still in the dies I inked through with the same ink as I stamped with.  Finally the tags were tied together with natural raffia and adhered to the card.
