Cool Dude !

Hello and thanks for visiting today.

First I would like to welcome my three new followers  Lilian  Annie and Sally.  I hope you will be able to give them a visit.

This card today was made with a Woodware stamp which I  bought a couple of weeks ago and is getting it's first inking.

I had a piece of swooshed card on my desk which was yellow and orange colours with some mica spray so thought this image would fit well on it.

I stamped the Dude and the sentiment onto  white card using Blue Memento then coloured in with Promarkers then fussy cut them out.

I stamped the image again onto the background where I wanted to place him then rubbed roughly over and outside the image area with Mustards Seed and Barn Door distress inks to give a punch  of colour.  The edge of the card was inked with Black Soot distress ink.

Then I stuck the boy onto the card, added a couple of stamped stars, in blue memento and added the sentiment.  I matted onto black card and attached to a white A6 card.

I would like to enter my card into the challenge on Cardz 4 Guyz  #112 Teenage Kicks.

Your swooshed background works perfectly with your cool dude Barb, loving the bright colour combination. A brilliant boy card.

Big hugs after your comments yesterday, that must have been very tough times for you.

Wow. This is a super teens card. Love all your colours and the trick you used to stamp to also stamp out on the card so you'd know where the outline would fall to add the extra colouring. hugs Mrs A.
