Here is the first card I have made and its using one of the new images found on the CD. He looks so . . . teenager . . .
Papers and image: Polka Doodles Pretty Tuff CD
Swiss Dots embossing folder
That Special Touch mask
I have cut out the "dude" from several different papers, inked the edges, embossed with my Swiss Dots folder and then matted onto black card. Lots of layering using other papers and co-ordinations card (again embossed and distressed) and finally added embellishments printed onto Letraset Safmat for the finishing touch!
Doesn't this lad have the true "stare into space / I don't care / whateva" expression or as my 13 year old son would say "I'm only letting you take this photo to get you off my back!"
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Moving along with the times: No Girls Allowed!
