Rebel | Masculine Stamps

Hello! Sharon Traynor is back with her second card to inspire you today. This time it’s a masculine card featuring our awesome new ‘Art Rebel’ stamps…

I have created a one layer masculine card for a man that’s a bit of a rebel. Ha! Who doesn’t love a rebel, eh?

This card has been made using another of the new stamp sets from the Visible Image February release, and this set of stamps is perfect for fun and funky masculine cards. There are loads of smaller stamps in the set, including some brilliant fish, but I decided to do some pencil colouring on kraft card using these wonderful face stamps. The face design is so unique, isn’t it?

One good thing about making CAS cards is that they are simple to re-create. Just as well really because I had to recreate this one as I’d made the first one (above) without photographing the step-by-step.

So come along with me while I do it all again…

First, stamp the image onto a kraft card blank in versamark black ink.

I used polychromos pencils because they show up beautifully on kraft card. Colour the hair in a lightish brown and the face in the flesh colours. (the sun was out when I took this picture)

Then using a white and grey, colour the goggles and the teeth (then the clouds came out so these photos are duller)

Add some more white and a little blue onto the goggles. Then add some white shading on the top and left sides of each rectangle

Add a little grey shading on the bottom and right side of each rectangle. This gives the illusion that the rectangles have been 3D’d.

Next stamp the images into the goggles. Stamp the right eye in black ink, and the left eye in versamark clear. Add white embossing powder to the left eye, then brush the excess powder away from the outside to reveal the edges of the goggle, and heat emboss the central part of that eye. When cooled add some blue pencil to create a wacky eyeball.

Here’s where I diverted from my original card. I added glossy accents to the goggles. In hindsight I really wish I hadn’t, as I much prefer the original card I made.

One thing I forgot to do though was add that white pencil shading around the edges of the head. This makes the head pop off the page. You can see here how the glossy accents really affected the right eye so that you can’t see the white pencil I added to it. Anyway, lesson learnt.

Finally heat emboss the ‘rebel’ sentiment in white embossing powder.

And here’s the end result
