Dude, You Rock!!

Is it really Thursday already? Holy cow. This week is going by fast! Well, since it's Thursday, I have a CCEE card to share with you today with a sketch provided by our one and only team member, Shirley Quarry. She has a month of sketches planned, and I hope ya'll will join us. Here's this week's sketch:


Here's my take on the sketch:



Verve's latest release is just full of super fun summer images. And I thought this combo of images would be perfect for my nephew who turned 15 yesterday. I used images from the following Verve sets: Relax, Happy Days, and Dude.

The wave was inked up with Versamagic inks, and the surf boards and sun were inked up with Black Onyx Versafine, embossed with Clear ep, and watercolored with Tombow markers. All the edges were ink distressed with Black Soot Ranger Distress Ink. For the sand, I used some fun handmade paper by Prima, and the dp is by Kaisercraft.

I added his initials, in brand form, to one of the boards to personalize it a bit.

That's it for today's card. We'd love to see how you use this sketch, so head on over to the CCEE Stamper's Blog for all the details.

Happy Stamping my friends!!
Tosh

How all you need to do is to "Pull some gnarly air, Dude" - I seriously love your surfer card, Tosh. That Prima hand made paper is fabulous and the dark shading on the surf boards is perfect. I adore the branded initials.

Tosh,
This card is so cute!! One thing I/we don't see enough of are teen boys/Guy cards. The Prima hand made paper is really awesome. This is a winner.

I know this is going to sound silly, but I was thinking of you today. I haven't done much blog surfing (pun intended...looking at your GORGEOUS card) lately, but when I saw your link on another blog, I thought I needed to come see what you've been up to! Amazing stuff, girl. This surfer card reminds me of my youth. Don't know if you knew this, but I grew up on the beaches of northern California (Santa Cruz, Monterey, Half Moon Bay). Now I'll be smiling the rest of the day! Hugs!!

Joan Ervin said...

Rose Ann said...
