Get Hip For Summer...

Hello everyone...

I'm just dropping by today to share another Hipster card that I created for the Tim Holtz/Sizzix "Get Hip For Summer" challenge! The challenge ends tomorrow, 21st if you're quick, you still have time to join in all the fun!

For this card, my Hipster is one who travels the world and is a bit of a chick about town! He wears a smart suit, cool sunglasses and there's not a hair out of could say, Billy the Chick (named after Billy Idol because he reminded me of him) the smartest dude around!
As you can see there's lots of layers and dimension to this card and I used plenty of Sizzix/Tim Holtz dies to create the background for my chick.
I combined the Hipster die and stamp set to create my layered image which I coloured with Distress Marker Pens. The sunglasses frames are die cut from black card and then I added acetate coloured with an alcohol marker to create the glass.
The background for the card is made using the Newsprint stamp from Tim Holtz and coloured with Distress Crayons. I then matted it onto different layers of card and corrugated card before mounting it onto my card blank.

I cut the Mini Globe from gold Metallic Kraft Stock and then applied alcohol ink over the top to make it look more worn and shabby.
For the wording I used the Traveler Word Dies from the Metallic Kraft stock and then alcohol inked the positive section of the panel before matting it onto gold Deco Sheets. I then added the brighter gold lettering back into place, which just gave it a nice contrast!
To complete the card, I layered all the die cut elements onto my stamped background adding ephemera piece, dyed cheesecloth and some idea-ology pieces ~ Sprocket Gears and the camera from the Souvenir Adornment Set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope you enjoyed meeting and getting to know Billy The Chick!
See you again soon...Emma x
