Fun and Play Card by Fran


Today I have a really fun card to show you.  I was driven by the image to make the card colorful and playful.  The digital image I used is by Mo Manning called Come Out and Play.  When you see the image it will bring back lots of memories for us who were kids during the 50s and skating was the favorite past time.  I can remember going to the Shoemakers down the street from where I lived to buy skate keys because I would lose mine all the time.  Oh and the best shoes to use were saddle oxfords.  You know the ones that were black and white.  The skates would stay on better. Just a little skating down memory lane.



I colored the image using Prang colored pencils and the Gamsol technique.  I used a Spellbinders Mega Nestabilities, Curved Rectangles  to cut around the image.  I distressed the card with Tumbles Glass and Crushed Olive Distress Inks.  All the small flowers were punched using a Retro Flower Punch by EK Success,  Added lots of Stickles Glitter Glue to the flowers, words, and speech bubble.  The larger flower is from my stash.  I used the Silhouette Portrait to cut out the words: F-U-N and P-L-A-Y.  The frame of the card on the front and inside was also cut using the Silhouette called Notebook Edges.   Inkssentials Glossy Accents & Tombow Permanent Adhesive to hold everything together. Cardstock is from my stash. And the speech bubble and text was created in Paint Shop Pro.
