My first card uses the Billy Snowboarder image. This is my tribute to the US Men's Snowboarding Team, especially to Shaun White, since he won another gold! I don't know about you, I really enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics. I decided to step out of the box for this card and try my hand at an Easel card. I can't believe how completely easy they are to make! Here are the directions for making them.
I used some really old Basic Grey Dawson DP along with some Basic Grey (SU) & Bazzill cardstocks. I used a Heidi Swapp distressing tool to distress the edges of all of the papers and then added some Versa Mark chalk ink as well. I created the sentiment on my pc, cut it out with a nestie tag and then airbrushed it with some YR16. The snowflake border is an EK Success border punch. I used a MS snowflake punch and a phillips head screw brad that I colored with C7. The small snowflakes are were left over from the border punch. Here is a close-up of Billy. I masked him off and sponged some So Saffron around him. I used the following Copics: E0000, 000, 00, 08, 11, R20, YR12, 15, 16, B00, 02, 91, 93, 95, 97,
C1, 3, 5, & 7. I created his jacket using a colorless blender. I added some Liquid Glass (CTMH) to his goggles and snowboard.
Here is the inside of the card:
Here is my second card - Lily Snowboarder. I used a Magnolia-licious sketch for this card. I know this is super-bright, but it very cheery! I used some Basic Grey Lime Ricky. I bought this when it first came out, but I think this is the first time I ever used it. I thought it was perfect for this snowboarding princess! The sentiment was created on my pc and airbrushed with some YG25. I did not have any primas that matched this card, so I airbrushed them to match. Some Raspberry Fizz twill matched nicely with this DP. The bling is Doodlebug Designs.
I cut Lily out and popped her up on a background that I created a cloudy scene with my Copic ABS. I used these Copics on her: E0000, 000, 00, 11, 30, 35, 37, R20, RV11, 14, 17, 19, B000, 00, 02, 05, Y02, 11, YG 00, 21, 23, 25 & colorless blender.
Here is the inside of the card. I used a MS border punch to mimic the flowers on her board.Here is a peek of the new stamps that Melissa has in the store:
