My grandson, Curtis, recently turned 14. He’s not into much – online games (what teenage boy isn’t?), and music.
This card was really an abstract work, and just kind of evolved.
I’ve used two stamp sets to achieve this look:
Live Life Loud – from Gina K Designs (no longer available)
I started off by stamping “Birthday” using a Fern Gully stamp – it actually says Happy Birthday, but I masked it off. Then, using one of the ‘blotches’ from “Guitars” I stamped downwards with two colours.
I then randomly stamped with Gina K stamps on the right, added the “Happy” cut-out, and lastly, I stamped the guitar in Archival Jet Black directly onto the card. I also stamped the guitar again, and cut it out after sponging with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Here’s the inside of the card:
As you can see, I carried the theme over to the inside. The ‘blotches’ were made using the Guitars set again, and the greeting is from Birthday Greetings – Gina K Designs.
That’s it – pretty simple!
