Hi everyone and welcome! Last year when IndigoBlu released the 'Lost in Thought' stamp (a beautiful line drawing of a young woman) it was a huge hit - see an example HERE. Whenever out and about demonstrating it I lost count of the number of times I was asked "Can we have a male version please!" Creating cards/projects with younger men and teens in mind appears to be a huge issue! Well, ask and you shall receive - here's the new 'Lost in Benidorm', an A6 size stamp that just might set a few pulses racing ;)...
(click on each image for a closer look)
For this first card I used a paint brayered background, scraped over with white Gee-Sso Good! gesso, and added some stamping from the new A5 'Light and Sound Borders' set and the A5 'Tasty Textures' set (using various StazOn inks). An offcut piece of background was used for the sentiment (A5 'Grand Tour I' set) and Mr 'Lost in Benidorm' was then simply stamped onto white card and fussy cut to fit. Wouldn't this be great for someone heading off to university/college or starting out on a new job or travels abroad?!
This one is slightly more 'moody' and would translate well to a journal page I think. This time I used more paint brayered card and die cut tickets and stamps to layer over the background. After blending Distress Ink Marker around the edges to create shadows I used the arrows from that soon to be released A5 'Light and Sound Borders' set alongside others from the A5 'Grand Tour II' set. Once again Mr 'Lost in Benidorm' was stamped separately and fussy cut, this time in a Teal Blue StazOn ink on book paper with a dash of Tumbled Glass Distress Stain to tone down the colour. Blending a touch of Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges helped to give the illusion of dimension when in fact this is almost flat.
So what do you think? Isn't this a man that will help you with those 'troublesome teens and twenties men'! I have a feeling he'll be as popular as his female counterpart from last year when he becomes available for you all to get hold of. For now you'll need to drool over him a little here and think what you'll do with him (craft wise of course! keep it clean! ;)
I'm entering The Mixed Media Card Challenge #19 New Beginnings
as both of these cards are ideal for celebrating the start of a new phase in a young man's life.
That's it for today. I hope you have a great weekend ahead and whatever you're up to, take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx
