Teenager Male Card

My youngest turned 18 recently and here is the card I made for him. I CASED the idea from a card done by another Stampin'Up! demonstrator Belinda Ezzy which was shown on our Stampin'Up! demonstrators Stampin'Connection page. As soon as I saw this card last year I marked as a potential caqrd for Pat's 18th. It is always a challenge to get good guys cards and I wanted something extra special for his 18th.
The light doesn't catch the embossing but the wave effect has been embossed in clear embossing powder.

The graduation in colour is achieved by tearing a post-it note in a rough circle and masking it over the surfer after applying the initial Tempting Turquoise sponging. You do the masking twice with a bigger mask the second time. The wave effect is done by sponging lightly with Craft white ink and applying clear embossing powder. Then a final layer of Craft White is sponged on the right side and embossed again to create the water effect.

Stamp set is Seaworthy.
Card used Whisper White which was sponged to give the colour graduation, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Shimmery White for the numbers.
Ink used Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Versamark, Craft White.
Versamark pen, Big Shot and Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies, Clear and black embossing powder, heat gun, sponges, markers were other accessories used.

Thanks for visiting!
