One For The Boys by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, this week I have a quick and easy card to share perfect for the boys in your life as I fell in love with the gorgeous new Tim Holtz Sideshow stamps. They’re beautifully collage in style so it doesn’t need much else to make a great card.


Archival Cobalt Ink
Brusho Crystals – Lemon, Scarlet, Cobalt Blue, Sandstone
Kraft Card Blank or make your own


Cut a piece of stamping paper to fit your chosen card blank or you could do as I did and make a whole sheet so that you have some to use on other projects – good huh?

The first step is to sprinkle the sandstone Brusho Crystals all over and mist with water. I then let the paint run until the sheet was roughly covered. I then added a little blue and red, misted again and let the colours run, blotting some with a paper towel.

I cut a piece of the coloured paper for my card blank and stamped the running wheel image roughly in the centre with the cobalt ink.

I next sprinkled more of the red, blue and also yellow Brushos on the paper and misted them gently with water to give the paper added interest.

Ink around the edges of the paper with the Distress ink and stick on to the card blank. Finish off with a sticker from the book – I distressed mine a little with pastel pencils.

We have a great new challenge for you today over at That’s Crafty! Challenge Blog so don’t forget to check it out at 8am.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
