The Old Days Series: Derek Clapton

Hi everyone, as of today for the coming two months I will share with you some older projects I created a few years ago but never got around to publishing on my blog (mainly because of conflicting design team agreements, and since I, as of the new year, temporarily stepped down from all the design teams I was on, I can share them with you now). This also gives me a break from having to create something for my blog and figure out what I want in my crafting after having been on Design Teams for the past five years.

Today I have a fun card for you featuring one of the awesome digital images from Doctor Digi. This particular image is called “Derek Clapton“. Sometimes masculine cards are hard to create but with images such as these it’s really easy! Just colour away and your card is almost ready!

I started my card by printing the image onto Copic friendly paper and colouring the image using my Copic Sketch Markers. I used the following colours: E000, R00, R01, E11, G00, BG13, BG49, BG78, R22, R29, R89, B0000, B21, BG70, B91, B95, B37, B39, C00, C3, C4, C7, C9, W1, W3, W5, W7, Y19, Y26, E42, E55, E57 and E89. After the colouring was done I added back in some highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen.

Next I die cut around the image using one of the dies from my stitched rectangle Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL nesting die set. I also die cut a slightly larger mat from some matching coloured card stock using one of the dies from my regular rectangle Crea-Nest-Lies XXL nesting die set. These two panels I adhered together using liquid glue.

Then I started working on my sentiment: for this I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kaisercraft “Background Birthday Sentiments“ stamp set onto some dark blue card stock using VersaMark ink and then I heat embossed using Ranger “Liquid Platinum“ embossing powder.

Next I die cut around the sentiment using the largest die in the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners“ die set.

And then it’s already time to finish this card: I adhered the banner to my combined panels using one millimetre thick foam tape and I wrapped the banner to the back of the card and adhered it there using regular tape. Now the only thing I have to do is to adhere these combined panels with the banner to a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

That’s it for today’s project, I wish you’ll a creative day!
