Hello Roadies, Its Koren here with another Ink Road blog post!
Today I am sharing a card I made using The Ink Road’s Snarks and Recreation stamp set and WOW embossing powders. I only recently began watching this television series, and felt that I had to make a Ron Swanson card. I began with a wood grain piece of cardstock in a light to medium brown shade. I then stamped the image of Ron’s signature facial hair in clear sticky embossing ink, and then used WOW’s embossing powder in Bark. After a quick shot with my heat tool, the wood grain cardstock looked like someone had burned Ron Swanson’s face onto a piece of wood- which was exactly the look that I was going for!
I then used the same materials and technique to stamp the snarky sentiment and a horse to round out the background. I then grabbed a little red ink, and used a name tag from the “As you wish” stamp set from the Ink Road, and masked out the name, and then added Ron’s name in the same fashion as the rest of the stamped images. I also popped up his name tag to give the card a little bit of dimension.
Finally, I added a few small die cut hearts from some brown cardstock that I had in my stash, and loved the way that this turned out. It seemed rugged, and I feel as though it embodies his character. I hope you enjoyed it as well.
