This month’s image for the Progressive Challenge on the Art by Barb Facebook page makes a great summer birthday card for a young lad. What can be more fun than taking a good friend for a canoe trip on a lovely sunny day. I wish I could join them!
Art by Barb – Ahoy There (the boy image i free from the Art by Barb Facebook page if you are new to the challenge or took place in the previous challenge)
DDDoodles – Sizzling Summer Textured Paper
rope and greeting acrylic stamps
black archival ink pad
X-Press It card
white A5 card blank
square die set
Print the image at required size on X-Press It card and colour with Copics. Use a square die set to cut the image and a slightly larger mat (cut from a piece of the water paper from the Sizzling Summer set).
Attach the image to the mat then glue the mat onto blue card and trim away the excess leaving a narrow border around the edges.
Use the rope and greeting stamp with black archival ink to make the greeting at the bottom of the card and colour with Polychromo pencils.
Attach the topper to the front of the card.
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
