Make It Crafty & Little Miss Muffet have been having a Graffiti Party to celebrate the launch of a new line of stamps & generously offered a couple of freebies to play along with. I thought that a graffiti style would make a fun, male card so even though I have been very short of crafting time of late, wanted to play along. I chose to use the 'Graffiti Krew Writer' image of a spray can with a 'bit of attitude' but actually flipped it over so it/he, was then looking in the opposite direction & so that 'he' became the letter ' I ' of birthday.
Kept it relatively simple really, using my Cameo to cut a welded card base incorporating the Graffonti font (4 layers) & also to cut out my spray can. Of course, cutting out the can before I set about colouring it with my Promarkers meant due to it's relatively small size, it wanted to move around a lot so colouring it was a little tricky at times.
I also used my ever-present Silhouette Cameo to create an embossed mat for the brickwork layer behind the cut-work text. I used cardboard from a cereal packet for this & played around with the 'sandwich' for my Big Shot to get my heavy textured cardstock to give me the 'real brick' effect I was after. I then 'weathered' my bricks with a couple of Distress Inks. So, not my usual style of card I know but don't you think it does you good to go outside your comfort zone every now & then?
|Doesn't it just look like he is saying to himself, " I did that" & chuckling? LOL.|
