I have a scary week this week; going back to work AND 2 male birthday cards to make!!!
I found a great sketch challenge though at Inkspirations which helped me out a lot. (With the male birthday card that is, they were no help at all with the problem of having to go back to work!)
My youngest daughter is going to a friends birthday party on Wednesday and he is turning 6. So I decided to try something colourful. I used the Brights family but subbed Concord Crush for Tangerine Tango, and matted these squares onto white and then night of navy. I sponged the moon with sahara sand and basic grey and used my cropadile to put a few “craters” on it too! The moon, rocket and flame are in shimmery white (nice and sparkly!)
Stamps : Pun Fun, short and sweet, extreme elements
Card : confetti white, shimmery white, real red, night of navy, concord crush,razzleberry,pumpkin,daffodil,melon mambo,olive,pacificpoint,turquoise
Ink : versamark, stazon, olive, turquoise, daffodil, pumpkin, basic grey, sahara sand
Other : square punch, circle punch, white embossing powder, aquapainters, cropadile, dimensionals
You can’t tell from the photo, but I have put some dimensionals under some parts of the “flame” and have bent it up and down, which looks better than it just being straight (which is how it looks in the photo).
