My comment was chosen as one of the winners for the CAS-ual Fridays new stamp set, release/Blog Hop two weeks ago. I was so excited to get my hands on another one of their awesome stamp sets. (I already own 8 Happy Nights) For my prize I chose the stamp set Rad.
When I was a kid my friends and I used to crack each other up by talking like Valley Girls. So, I think that I will have a fun time mixing and matching the totally, awesome words from this set, dude!
I made this card for my nephew Sam, who is turning 11 in June. Sam doesn’t talk like a surfer or a Valley Girl but, hopefully he will get a kick out of this epic card.
In order to create the neon paint splatter (very 1980 something) I used my Hero Arts neon inks and some Copic Clear Blender. First I pressed some ink onto my plastic table mat and then I added just one drop of the blender. Next I dabbed my paint brush in and then I just flicked it at the card. The end result reminds my of the J. Geils Band video for Freeze Frame. YouTube it. If you were a kid in the 80’s you will remember how awesome it was to have your MTV.
Next up is a more polished card using the same set and neon inks.
I only had a chance to make two cards with this set before I had to leave for work this morning but, I plan to play around with it more tonight or tomorrow.
I will be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.
A big thank you to Michele at CAS-ual Fridays for her generosity, inspiration and totally awesome stamps!
