PaperPlay Challenge – Child/Teenager

I'm delighted to be posting my first PaperPlay DT card! This week’s challenge at PaperPlay is to make a card for a child/teenager. The prize is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps and the winner will receive four images.

I thought I’d make a card aimed at a teenage boy and used a digi image from Stitchy Bear Stamps called J.T. which I think is great for teenagers\young adult guys. This was my first time going the digi route and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be!



I used colouring pencils to colour the image. Then I layered the sentiment and added a part of a snap fastener to the centre. For the orange panel, I applied spiced marmalade distress ink to white card and spritzed with water. The top part of the card is embossed with a Cuttlebug stars folder and on the bottom part I clear embossed the Raindrop Background. I cut the piece of denim from an old pair of jeans and added some machine stitching around the edges.

I'm hoping you'll join in the fun and am looking forward to seeing your creations!

Stamps:- Stitchy Bear Stamps (J.T.), Hero Arts (Birthday Messages, Raindrop Background)
