Creative Card Crew Challege #88 Teen

Creative Card Crew challenge #88 is a teen theme. At first this challenge threw me. I had no idea what to do for a Teen project. It seems all my teen does is text, listen to music, and play video games.

Then I ran across the ElenaK digi image and decided this is perfect; heavens knows my son would give anything to be a Rockstar.

Prize: 3 Digi's

I began by printing the image and coloring her with Copic markers and adding accents with my Sakura Gelly Roll pens. I fussy cut the image and set it aside while I assembled the rest of the card.

I used patterned paper from the Hey Kid paper stack by Pink Paislee. For the background, I used Ranger's Clear and Gold Embossing Powder and the Rockstar stamp set from Inkadinkado. I highlighted the sentiment with my Signo Uni-ball gel pen.

I used a EK Success punch and backed the open spaces with Scor-pal tape. I filled the star-shaped holes with gold embossing powder and heated it to create an "enamel" feel to the "stage."

I adhered all of the paper components to a purple card base and popped the image p off of the "stage." I finished the card off by adding faux stitching with my Signo Uni-ball white gel pen.

I look forward to seeing your interpretation of the Teen challenge. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

  1. Hi Dana,
    I got here via Scrumptiously blog. She suggested I ask you about what a beginning card maker should have in terms of supplies. I am not crafty but would love to try my hand and most of the recipients are adults. You can find my email on the profile section of my blog. Thanks!
