French Foliage gets Spritzed


Today's card is a masculine attempt.  I was really trying to tackle those difficult pre teen/teenage boy cards.  Not sure I've hit the mark but it was fun to play with different toys! 

 I was aiming at a messy jotter page, ink splodges, bit grubby, edges of the pages all tattered.  At least that's what my son's jotters look like Lol!  Needless to say he didn't appreciate the comparison and when my Husband saw it he thought of a mint choc ice with bites taken out of it!  Go figure!  Perhaps he was hungry?? 

So here's how it was made - Island Indigo card base to start.  Background mat of Early Espresso.  Main panel is Whisper White and spritzed using the Spritzer Tool and Stampin' Write Markers - River Rock, Soft Suede and Sahara Sand.  The splodges are from French Foliage and stamped in Pool Party.  A strip of Early Espresso was paper pierced using the Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack which includes a very handy template to keep you in line.  The sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes and stamped in Island Indigo.  It's punched out using the Extra Large Oval Punch with a mat of Early Espresso. 

Will keep trying out those pre teen cards.  Enjoy the rest of your evening. x

Super card Aileen - you're definitely on the right track with the inky background. (I wouldn't know where to start!) xx

Lol, mint choc ice!! I think it looks very like the jotter idea you were aiming for Aileen but a little more sophisticated! Fab!
