This means two things to me - I can make one of my favourite style cards (having a teenage boy I make a lot) and it's also the title of one of my favourite songs by The Undertones. I'd forgotten how old it is though; see the video link at the end of the post!!
I've made a card for my son Ben - he'll be arriving in Detroit next Saturday, and I'm really looking forward to seeing him. This card is for him. All the wonderful weather we've been having and the fabulous colours from this week's ColourQ - cQc143 challenge gave me the idea of a surfer dude card!!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pacific Point, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Basic Grey
Accessories: Card from stash
It'll come as no surprise that I turned to my all time favourite teen set from Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy. The images in this set work perfectly for teen/male cards (they work for girls too). I stamped the circles in pale yellow, added the graphic wave and combined two sentiments. I then added some subtle spatter to the card. I finished off by adding two cool surf boards.
Here's the colour graphic for this week's Colour Q challenge - it's so pretty!
