My husband and boys love the comic superheroes and we go to see all of the films - so I had to have the Explosion! stamp set from Uniko Studio. I love the stamps that Bev designs and have been playing with the beautiful new Vines set that she has just released (which I will share later) - you should go and check out her store and blog.
I went for a bold card in comic colours of blue, yellow, black and red for this male birthday card:
I white embossed the explosions and words and coloured the background with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I spattered with water to add a bit of interest and bleached a bit of colour out around the explosions with a water brush too. The sentiment is put together with Hero Arts Journal letters which I thought worked with the style of the explosion stamps.
These stamps are perfect for male cards and I am sure that I am going to have lots of fun with them :)
As this is a male birthday card I will play along with Time Out's third challenge to create a birthday card with an optional twist of male birthday.
Have a lovely Easter Sunday!
