It is sketch time at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge for the next two weeks. Sketches are fun because I love seeing the different interpretations of the sketch elements.
We recently had a birthday at our home and this is the card I made my son that was inspired by the sketch. I used some REALLY old stamps and not so old to create this card.
1. Ink Fiskars (2000) Birthday Type with two colors of Imagine Crafts Radiant Neon in Electric Blue and Electric Green. Stamp on white cardstock and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. This stamp was originally designed to be used with a roller, a little surgery with scissors and I was good to go with just an acrylic block. Ink the edges with Electric Blue
2. Die cut two sizes of Spellbinders Stars from white cardstock and pressure emboss with embossing mat. Ink larger star with Ink Blusher in Electric Green and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Stamp "17" in Electric Blue with Clearsnap Magna Stamp Parisian, from 1992, these really needed some inky love! Then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Ink edges with Ink Blusher which allows you to get into each corner easily.
3. Pressure emboss white cardstock with Spellbinders Seth Apter Laser Beams. Ink diagonal areas alternating Electric Green and Electric Blue.
4. Use an Ink Blusher to ink the edges of the base card with Electric Green and Electric Blue.
5. Assemble card and adhere panel and stars with dimensional adhesive.
6. Stamp Technique Tuesdays Say It Happy "to you" in Electric Blue
