Hi everybody. Today's card is for hubby's 12 year old great nephew using this stamp from Woodware called Sneakers and with a nod in the added sentiment to the song Jeepers Creepers which is where I got the title for the post from, although I didn't use it on this card. I found this stamp at a craft fair I went to recently and am using it for the first time, and as his birthday was approaching I thought this would work well, and I can see it working well for a few others in the family approaching a similar age although. I also used a That Special Touch mask called Splats which I have had for a very long time.
I started by stamping the sneakers using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I the coloured them using Faded Jeans and Black Soot Distress inks using a waterbrush, and fussy cut them out. I realise that I should have continued the blue on the upright shoe on the left and added another lace, must have had a senior moment and too late now as it has been posted...I'll get it right next time.
I then cut a piece of card to fit a 6" square card and used some Brushos to colour the background with Ost. Blue and a little Turquoise. I continued with the stencilled splats using the Faded Jeans DI applied with a brush and placed so they surrounded the sneakers. I picked out the main large one to do top right and bottom left and then filled in with a couple of smaller ones top left and bottom right, and I finished with the sentiment using the Nocturne ink and the Clear Gloss EP.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
