Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl with you today and I’m sharing a mixed media card I made for my great nephew who has a birthday coming up soon. He will be eleven, and I thought the Boys will be Boys stamp set perfect for this age group. I began by colouring the main image (the boy) and the skateboard using the Couture Creations Twin Tip Alcohol Markers. Then I cut each one out and put them aside. Using my Couture Creations Gel Printing Plate, I laid down two colours of alcohol inks – one to represent the sky and the other for the grass. I used Alcohol Ink Paper to ‘pull’ the print. This became my background. I cut that piece down to match the size of my cardbase, then glued it down. I added the skateboard, then the boy was added on top of the skateboard, to emulate the child riding the board. Lastly, I stamped out the greeting, then cut around it. I then added it with foam pads.
That was my card done. I have listed all the items below that I used for this card, and also itemised the colours of the Alcohol Markers used for each part area. (i.e. shirt, face, etc.)
