Graffiti Wall

Good morning all and welcome to my post to announce an other new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
This week the theme choice was mine and I went for -


So we would like to see your projects for the teenage male in your life. Not sure why I picked this as I no longer have any teenagers in the family but obviously many of you do!
Having chosen the theme I was at first stumped but then remembered buying a set of graffiti stamps by Woodware and thought them just the thing.
So here is my card for a teenager.

I stamped the words onto a piece of white card then masked them plus a border and inked over a brick stencil with some DIs, Fired Brick, Tea Dye and Antique Linen. I liked the effect but thought it needed something else so I used the mirror stamping technique to create a pair of boots from a single on another set, Rock Dude. The stamped images were then coloured in rainbow colours with Copics and a bit of freehand doodling and the boots fussy cut out and applied. I don't like grunge so went with a bright cheerful palette! I kept the birthday greeting for the inside of the card!

For more inspiration please check out the rest of the DT and why not join us this week. :)

I'd like to join in over at -
