I am a guest designer for May at Brutus/Monroe. They have sent me a couple of their new releases and I must say “this was out of my comfort zone”. AND I enjoyed every minute coming up with a card design and always the coloring! I am looking forward to more. (hint, hint) My project today is completed with “Re-boot” This has a lot of great sentiments too. I hope you enjoy my process. (Affiliated links are listed below at no cost to you.)
My first step was creating the screen for the computer. I used some glossy cardstock, and the alcohol inks Amethyst, Wild Plum, and Silver Mixative, squeezed on the felt and swiped on the cardstock. I was trying to get some form of screen saver, but this was what I ended up with.
Second step, after the inks dried, was to stamp the computer stamp with Jet Black Archival ink on the alcohol inked cardstock. I sat that aside to dry. After the inks were dry I stamped the first sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.
Third step was stamping the computer image with Amalgam Jet Black Ink on Bristol 300series cardstock and 80# Neenah Solar Crest White cardstock. The image on the Bristol was colored in with the Copics The Copic used were C0, 3, 5, W1, 3, V91, and 110 Black. The same image was stamped on the Neenah cardstock and also colored with Copics as a background. I decided to add some gold pen to the keys and the “knobs” on the monitor. I stamped the second sentiment with Jet Black archival ink below the computer.
Now the assembling of the card…I trimmed the computer image monitor screen only. Next I fussy cut the colored image on the Bristol and trimmed out the monitor screen. I adhered the monitor screen to the back of the actual computer image. Next I cut the layers for the front of the card and assembled them. My finished project is an A2 sized card.
Thanks for stopping by! A great big thank you to Brutus/Monroe. I will have another project with a new Brutus/Monroe stamp set. If you have any questions, email me please.
