We’ve got another wonderful challenge for you this week on the Sweet Stampin' blog, and the theme is “Masculine”. I don’t know about you, but I find I never make enough cards for men or boys, so this was a perfect opportunity to get one done! I hope you’ll play along with us this week. We look forward to all your lovely creations. Good Luck!
This image is called “Kitchen Knight” and it’s from Mo’s Digital Pencil. He sure looks like he is having a ball!
I colored the image with Copics, and then used the round and scalloped die by Spellbinders to layer the image. The cute designer paper is by 3 Bugs In A Rug, and it’s called D Is For Dinosaur, a perfect match for the image. I added a bit of machine stitching in orange for just a bit of detail.
The star buttons I made myself. I just cut them out using a Cricut cartridge. Then I applied some clear ink and Ultra Thick clear embossing powder, and heat set it with a heat gun. I applied about 5 layers and it gave it the burnt orange color and thickness. Very simple to do, and a lovely effect. If you want to give it a crackled look, put it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. Once you take it out of the freezer just bend the stars in a few places and the embossing powder will crack giving you the crackled look.
