Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Dr digi‘ house of stamps. I chose to use ‘Ice Hockey Hugh’ for this challenge as I’ve watched ice hockey for years (I even saw game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Ottawa in 2003!) and one of the films I like it Mystery Alaska.
I coloured Hugh in using Chameleon pens (NU3, BK4, NU00, NU2, WG3, NG4, BL2, RG3), cut him out with my scanncut CM900 and layered him up onto a background I made using two distress inks (fired brick and candied Apple). To make the background I used the direct to paper technique, spritzed the card and added salt crystals. I let this dry naturally and love the mottled effect it’s produced. After cutting the background to size I stamped stars in blueprint sketch distress ink along with the sentiment. The white stars I stamped in versamark ink and added sea foam embossing powder and heat embossed them.
The thought behind this was that I wanted a red white and blue American theme. I know I didn’t get any stripes in there, but those are on the ice rink from the skates!
I mounted all of this up onto a blue base card and love love love this masculine card inspired by the film Mystery Alaska. I hope you like it too and maybe you’ll be inspired to go find the film and watch it or even to make a card of your own.
