Kick Off Your Birthday

| 2 min read

Have you seen the brand new release from Visible Image yet? It's a fabulous collection and includes some incredible stamps for sports fans. I have chosen to use the 'Kick Off Your Birthday' stamps + dies, and Holodeck stencil for my first project for this release as I am pretty sure all of us crafters have a football fan in our life!

I began by cutting some cloud shape masks on a post it note, and also cut an uneven piece to mask off the ground before laying the Holodeck stencil over the top. Distress Oxide inks give such a lovely blend and so these were my ink of choice.

step 1

I then removed the masks and coloured the grass, covering over the blue with the opposite side of the post it section.

step 2

I stamped the footballer in position in order to ensure that the splatters formed part of the image. The Distress Oxide inks do affect the stamped image as you can see, but as I planned to re-stamp and die cut on this occasion it wasn't a problem.

step 3

Using the dies, I re-stamped, embossed, and cut the main image and football. Before adhering them with gel glue, I also stamped the grounding stamp on the grassed area for added detail.
