Inspire Create Challenges #014 Epic Celebrations!

Every fortnight we have a new challenge,  this time it's a sketch challenge and I have used the Epic Celebration Stamp set.

I love a sketch challenge. It's fun to see that given the same sketch we all come out with such different cards. I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the Design team have come up with. We have the very talented Kylie Bertucci as Guest Designer with us this week! Do pop over and have a look, HERE you can see all the other entries and join in too. I hope you do, we would love to see what you come up with!

We have a birthday in our house this week! One of our boys is turning 11. How did that happen?!  so I thought the Epic Celebration stamp set would be perfect for this. We have three children in the house and many pairs of converse so it seemed very fitting.

I have used the Colour Theory as the background in my card in Dapper Denim and stamped with the Converse image also in Dapper Denim to give a water mark effect.

I have used the reverse side pattern of the same DSP for this one. It is like a crackle glaze and quite effective. Which one do you like?

You can see that stamped the DSP on this one too.It is more obvious on the whiter parts of the paper.

I have embossed the Converse image using Dapper Denim ink and clear embossing powder and added a couple of Glitter Enamel dots in Dapper Denim.

 I have cut the "Celebrate" from the silver foil card using another set free with Saleabration. The Celebrate You Thinlit Dies. The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped in Dapper Denim, punched using the classic label punch and attached to the Celebrate using Dapper Denim Bakers Twine.

The card base is A4, scored at 10.5 cm and cut at 14.8 cm.
The Whisper White layer is 14.3 cm x 10 cm.
The DSP layer is 9.5 cm x 13. 8 cm.

I can't quite believe my youngest is turning 11!  I think he will love his card. He loves coming into my craft room and messing about with ink and paper too.
