So here is the card that I made for my son.
In case you can't read my messy writing, it says:
"Today is your day! Carpe the heck out of this Diem"
I started with kraft cardstock cut to 10x7 and scored down the center with the Scor-it-All for a 5x7 card. I folded the card and distressed the 3 open edges with my Distrezz-it-All.
I used some metal mesh and gesso to add a bit of messy texture then added some splatters with the gesso as well.
I lightly pressed a baby wipe over the card to soak up the extra gesso then dried it with a heat gun.
I used two of my FAVE colors of Smooch Spritz: Wood Stain & Caramel Latte.
After shaking the bottles until I couldn't see the mica settled on the glass anywhere, I lightly spritzed the Caramel Latte. I then removed the nozzle on the Wood Stain and flicked a bit of color onto the card then dried it all with a heat gun.
I Used my Mix'd Media Inx in Honey around the edges to give it a soft cloudy frame.
I softly blended my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX in Driftwood on the edges of the stars.
I ran a blender with my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX in Sparrow on just the edge of the stars.
I ran a blender with my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX in Midnight on just the edge of the stars but only in random areas.
I took the title that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo and placed it directly onto my Midnight Mix'd Media Inx CHOX pad and pressed it down with a pen in random areas (cleaning the pen off every time I pressed it down). I wanted to make the title show up a little better and to also make it look messy. I can't have something girlie on my project without adding a bit of grunge is some way. ;)
This is what the title looked like when I was done.
I adhered the stars with 3D Foam Squares from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives.
And the last thing I did was add the rest of the sentiment with a pen.
