Let’s celebrate the dudes in our life! Monday, we celebrated new moms. Today, let’s say Happy Birthday with our new Muscle Man Stamp Set and our new favorite coloring medium: Liquid Colors.
The Dude section of our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog has plenty of options for Dad. We are having too much fun with our new Muscle Man Stamp Set. He’s fun to put together as one piece, or stamp it apart like this fun background.
Let’s start crafting! Our first step is to get creative with our background. This Muscle Man is fun and deserving of a crazy colorful background that doesn’t follow exact patterned lines. Our Splashes could work, but it may not run across the page as much. Our Silks and Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils could work as well, but you may not get as deep of a color pigment. Try them yourself to see which you may prefer.
For this particular look, we wanted to use our Liquid Colors. We poured our favorite colors on a Clear Block and dabbed our cardstock panel right into it. We repeated this with each color. You can use Liquid Colors for a lighter color too – simply water down one of the colors for a light accent like we did with our Limeade Splash.
Allow your Liquid Color background to dry before stamping your Muscle Man images. We stamped him a part like a fun cut out comic. We even gave a slight glimpse of instructions for our recipient to cut him out using a Journey Emoji Stamp.
Finish your background with a dash of Electric Lime Silk. Then, clip your Muscle Man sentiment to your card with a Petal Clip.
