MiC graffiti party!

Damn! I missed World Cardmaking Day. That's the downside about being 12hours ahead of most of the world...I find out about these things  after the time has passed in Australia. Oh well. Today I am sharing a card I made for my brother’s birthday. I made this on the 6th which is when I found out about WCD, so it still counts, right?! The images are Make it Crafty (‘urban scene’ and ‘rocker dude’). The image was coloured with a bunch of different Copics listed below. If you are quick, you can grab the urban scene background (and a few others) as a freebie and take part in the Make it Crafty and Little Miss Muffet Stamps graffiti party here.

Since I wanted to write my brother’s name on the wall, so to speak, I used a font called ‘Souper 3’ from Dafont to get a graffiti look. I printed out the letters, then traced them in pencil onto the image (so I could re-position and overlap them a bit), then went over the whole thing in a 0.3 multiliner and erased the pencil. Easy.

This was a card of firsts for me – first scene, first grass, and first DIY graffiti. As a consequence I got a bit lazy with the actual card making part, and just matted on black cardstock, distressed the edges and popped it up on foam tape on a plain black base. Since it is a male card, I figured it doesn’t matter too much.

Copic colour list:
Wall & bricks – W00/1/3/5 and E13/15/18/50
Footpath, road, fence, jacket – C00/1/3/5/7/9
Clouds & sky – B0000/000/00 and C00/1/3
Grass – G20/21/94/99 and YG63
Skin – E000/00/21/13 and R20
Hair – E21/25/27
Shirt/shoes –R27/46/59 and E18
Jeans – B93/95/99
Guitar – R46/59 and 100
Graffiti – YR04/07; Y15/17; multiliner and white gel pen
