I have two cards today, first up… for the boys!
For this card, I spritzed the Copper dotted Springtime Foil sheet with water and sprinkled on Brilliant Blue and Yellow Brushos then spritzed again to mix the colors to create my background. These Crystal Colours are so much fun to play with – and if you like to paint – I highly recommend adding them to your collection. You can find them here.
For the sneakers, I combined the same two colors in a little paint palette and added a little water from an AquaPainter to mix the two colors together. The sneakers are embossed in White Embossing Powder on Whisper White cardstock, then painted with the brusho colors. These were then cut out by hand and popped up on a Basic Black 2″ circle. This is layered on a piece of Copper Foil punched with the Starburst punch. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and punched out with a 1 1/2″ circle punch.
The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. A piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ is matted behind the Springtime Foil piece which measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.
This same design and layout can also be turned into a card for girls by changing up the Brusho colours!
The same technique, punches and layers used for the boys are used here. The only difference, the Brusho colors. For the background piece, I sprinkled Brilliant Blue, Brilliant Red and Yellow brushos. For the sneakers, I mixed Brilliant Blue and Brilliant Red to create my purple.
Two great cards that can be used to celebrate a birthday or even graduation!
