Hello my friends. My card today is the one I made for my nephew who was 17 this month. So i can safely blog it now as he's had it.
At my last NEC visit in March, I bought an air brusher that is usually used in cake making. However the lady explained that she uses it for card making too. Now i'd been watching her on C&C for some time and in the end gave in after she let me try it. So I decided that I was going to use it on this card.
I first stamped the bunting in black archival and masked it off. Then I started with the blue colour that came in the pack and airbrushed the whole background.
I then added some yellow and 'sprayed' over the lower area thus obtaining green.
Finally I sprayed through the stencil with the red. I made it darker in some areas to create some depth.
So finally I could stamp. I stamped the sentiment first using the Letter box kit. Then I used 4 boy stamps from the Wee Folk that kind of reminded me of my nephew when he was a little boy.
The ball that the boy is throwing in the air is from the footballer in the Sport kit.
I finished it off by adding some faux stitching and the string to make it look as if it is hanging.
I went round it with a black sharpie pen and mounted it on white base card.
The stamps and stencil are all from Claritystamp.
I really hope he liked his card and didn't think it was too childish, Theresa xx
