Skateboarding Dude

Hi again all!

Well, keeping the momentum going from the last post I thought I’d show you another little masculine card I made recently. This one uses a few less PTI goodies than usual (shock horror gasp!) but there are still a few touches here and there!

I really like the cute-sized format and feel of this card. I started with a PTI Kraft cardstock base and rolled over my SU! Rough Texture Wheel inked up in Versamark ink. I then stamped a new new Extreme Skateboarding stamp from the new (US) SU! catalogue which a friend kindly got for me. I love the silhouette image! The image was stamped in PTI True Black.

I punched out a border from Kraft cardstock using a Martha Stewart Zigzag punch. I decided I wanted a contrasting colour on the raised part of the design so I applied PTI Ocean Tides ink in a direct-to-paper technique. Then to get a truer Ocean Tides colour I rubbed my Pallette New Canvas inkpad over the top and blotted off the excess. I love how the colour turned out!

I adhered a strip down one side and then a small segment just off the right of the card, on top of PTI Vintage Cream Topnotch Twill ribbon. The ribbon was cut at an angle using Pinking Shears and a sentiment from PTI’s Day At The Beach was stamped in True Black ink. Told you I still got my PTI goodies in somewhere!

Finally I took my True Black ink cube and inked the edges and also part of the card base haphazardly to give a ‘grungy’ look. I really like how this effect turned out and I think it would be great for a teenager or even those who are perhaps more ‘young at heart’ than young, lol.

  1. What a perfect guy card Taheerah! I love how you explained in detail how you did that border with DTP inking I shall have to try it soon. The rough texture wheel made a perfect BG too. (I need to pull mine out and start using it more!)
