I'm so excited that the weekend is almost here! We get to go camping down in New York with the family and I can't wait! Hoping that it won't be too hot again this year. Last year when we went camping it was over 100 degrees the whole weekend...miserable! But I know it will be fun either way :)
So we start a new challenge today at Meljen's Designs!! I'm in this weird boy card mood. Not normal for me as it's out of my comfort zone, but it's been kind of fun to see what pops out onto the paper :)
To start my card, I distressed all the edges with my scissors. Something about boy cards requires distressed edges to me.
I cut a star background with my Silhouette from a transparency to make a stencil and then colored up some embossing paste with a really light yellow ink. I didn't want them to be too bright. But I love how they turned out!!! Seriously, how fun is embossing paste!?
The sentiment was a little tough for me. I really wanted something nerdy to add to the card, but nothing seemed to work out properly. So I stuck with a regular hello, cut out several times so that it's a bit thick and sticks up off the card.
My cute Nerd O Saurus is colored with my Spectrum Noir pencils and blended out with baby oil. I added just a touch of glossy accents to his glasses to. And a bunch of sparkle to the Hello cut outs :)
Hope you will join us for this fun challenge!!
