Sneaker card - Chris Dark

Hi everyone, Chris here with you today to share my sneaker card. I often have to make cards for boys and found the Artistic Stamper Sneakers images are versatile as they can be used for quite a large range of ages.
 

 I've gone for a graffiti style of stamping and the Artistic Stamper backgrounds and border stamps are superb for this style. I used combinations of the following stamps on the kraft base card, the bottom torn and distressed watercolour layer, the bunting and top panel layers: 



Many of the stamps I used were inked partially with Distress stain which gives a nice unfinished/worn look which is great for this style, I also used permanent Archival ink and distress ink. I also added in some of my own doodled words, some Ranger Remnant rub ons, sprinkles of black embossing powder, some bright sequins, twine and a button to finish off.
