Summer Fun


It's Saturday and that means I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast today, Seize the Birthday Challenge and also the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
This card was a simple one; inspired by my son and his love of skateboarding and the t-shirt pictured below.  I started by using my Distress stain and getting the tip saturated with stain and then tapped it onto my paper to create the splat.  It is so fun to do especially if you love the look of the mixed media cards that I do.  I then added the stamping around it and the skateboarder image.
Fun card for a teenager I think.  
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look and I hope you have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps; Flonz, PTI, WPlus9, Woodwares/ Distress stain/ pop dots/ Memento black

  5. That splat is splatterrific - I was hoping it was a stamp! Now I'm gonna have to buy some Distress Stain (is that like daubers?) Love the colours, too!

  6. This is so perfect for a young man! I'm not sure what the distress stain is, but I'm going to have to look for it! Wish I got that stamp when it was available! My grandson loves his skateboard!

  7. INCREDIBLE stain splats, Karen! Great card! I am slowly but surely working on buying some Ranger stain and paint. FYI: On today's Ingenious Inkling (Stef from SCS IC) blog post, there is a link to this fab card. :D
