I've been racking my brains for a card for one of our friend's birthday next month. I really struggle with mens cards and wanted to do something funny for him so when I saw this quirky jester digistamp from Sassy Cheryl's I thought it would be perfect. I had lots of fun making this card - lots of inking and masking and generally getting messy
I coloured the image with inktense pencils and then masked it off to create the background using green and orange dye inks applied with a sponge. I then overstamped the green areas with a little crown stamp (freebie with craft stamper) and the orange area with an Elusive images background stamp. The Heidi Swann chipboard crowns started life pink so I coloured them to match the card using pigment inks and clear ep. The little jester seemed to disappear once the background was finished so I added a black glitter border around him to make him stand out more. I added an orange eyelet and a little green ribbon to the tag. I used a piece of black card and some orange corrugated card from my scrap box for the background. I wanted to stagger the sentiment and my rubber stamp didn't work so I've hand written it and added some faux stitching.
This card is for the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's: Green Orange, Black and Glitter
Tuesday Taggers: Masquerade, Jesters and Clowns
Theme Thursday: Masculine
Thanks for looking
