Dude! It's your birthday, wish big and ROCK ON!
This birthday card features a musical teen from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps coloured with Prismacolor pencil and a foiled die cut from Tutti Designs along with sentiments from two more Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sets.
Putting It Together
I love music, so this die called to when I saw it on sale a couple months ago. The Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set Smells Like Teen Spirit is a recent re-release. The two go together wonderfully with sentiments from two other Kraftin' Kimmie sets, both also recently released.
I stamped the image with Fog ink on white Mi-Tientes paper.
I used Prismacolor pencils to colour the teen using the "no lines" technique. I accented the strings on the guitar with some gel pen and added white dots to the eyes with gel pen, too.
I used the Tutti Designs treble clef with foiled paper in a bold orange. The "Dude" from the new Kick Assy Birthday was more impactful than the one in the Smells Like Teen Spirit set.
I adhered both the die cut with glue pen and the image with tape runner for a flat card and stamped "Dude!" with black archival ink.
Inside, I used the stars and "It's your birthday" from the Kick Assy Birthday set with "Wish Big and Rock On" from Dino-Mite Pals. I used black archival ink and dye ink. It's interesting to see how the two ink types interact with the paper with the archival so much crisper. I don't usually stamp the two types side by side like this but I wanted the colour to link back to the front.
