The Stamping Chef Guest DT All Boy

This is my second card as a Guest Designer at The Stamping Chef in their All Boy Challenge.

I have used this super cool image Graffiti Jack, I thought it would make a great boy’s birthday card.

I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour it in and then cut the image out.
I tried to make a shaped card so the wall was on one layer in front of the sky but it was too heavy and wouldn’t stop open so I added the sky background to the card base. The paper is from an American Crafts pad Neapolitan. I got a 12’’ stack from TK Maxx for only £6.99, complete bargain but I am not sure why the sky is green?

The bottom layer of the card is an embossing folder. I used some Kraft Core cardstock from Tim Holtz and sanded it down. This whole section is mounted on 3d foam and then the image is popped up on another layer so it is very dimensional.

I do hope you will check out The Stamping Chef. Tamara creates some wonderful images, some cute, and some sassy. There is a fortnightly challenge on the blog and on Facebook there is a group TSC Recipes where there is a weekly free image Progressive Challenge. There is loads going on and the people over there are lovely.

Thanks for having me as a Guest DT Ladies J
