Here's How: Since I needed to visually line up the three skate boards, I chose to create a mask from vellum cardstock. I simply cut a rectangle of vellum, die cut a skateboard from the center and ran some prepositional adhesive around the edge of the skateboard opening. Positioned the mask and sponged different colored inks onto either side, blending in the middle. Once happy with my sponging, I removed the mask, repositioned it below and started this process over.
Above is a look at the sponged skateboards. From this point, I then stamp the images from Boy Basics: Skater Dude directly over the sponging. The board logos in Enchanted Evening and the wheels and trucks (just confirm with my hubby, the part that the wheels attach to are trucks, he used to be a skater dude himself) in True Black.
The last added detail was a True Black cardstock strip attached to the base of the cards. Simply trimmed a 1/4" off the base of the card front and attached a 1/2" strip of True Black cardstock behind.
I'm pretty please with the way these simple single-layer cards turned out and so is my son. He was so stoked to wake up from his nap and see these cool cards sitting in the window, ready and waiting for their snapshots. Needless to say, he approved. I hope you all approve too!
Now be sure to check out the rest of the happenings for today. These Ladies have much more of the Boy Basics line-up to share with you today...
