Keep it Fit!



Hi everyone, today I’m sharing this fun masculine card with you all!



Step 1:

To get my project started I printed this digital image by Doctor Digi called “Keep fit Kenneth” onto alcohol marker friendly paper. For colouring the image I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers in the following colours:


Skin: FS7, TN1 and TN2;

Hair: IG2 and IG6;

Blue: TB1, TB2, TB4, TB5 and TB6;

Orange: BO1, BO3 and BO4;

Brown: MB2, GB8 and EB5;

Grey Brown: BG1, BG2, BG4 and BG7;

Around the image I used the same colours I used for the hair as well as a Classique marker in GY05.

After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.

Next I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.


Step 2:

For my background I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base form white card stock. Onto this panel I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kaisercraft “Background Birthday Sentiments” stamp set using black ink.


Than I positioned my stencil of choice (TCW662s) over the panel and applied some Spectrum Noir Water-Reactive Ink in the colours “Orange” and “Straw Bale” using stencil brushes. I also applied some of this ink around the edges and over the stencilled design to create less hard edges. And to finish the background I created splatters using Spectrum Noir Metallic Ink in the colour “Antique Bronze”.


Step 3:

Time to put my card together: for this I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching dark blue card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a creme coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
