I am starting a new series that I hope will become fun and challenging. I like to go through my local thrift shops to see what is out there that I could use for my mixed media and card making adventures. Some time ago I picked up these cute children's items - phonics flash cards, a little book and question & answers fan deck. They have been sitting in my stash for a long time so when I joined Tim Holtz's #hipforsummer challenge I decided to put them to use. I have made three so far and will share with you once a week. Not all will be Hipsters but that's where I started. My challenge to myself is to make something once a week using things that I already have but haven't used lately.
These are my thrift store items so here we go -
I used one of the phonics cards "ch", of course, is for Chimp.
He's pretty cool with his mirrored sunglasses and the attitude! I used a little Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide on the card itself and then did a little stenciling. The chimp is stamped and then colored with Copic Markers and finally die cut with the new Sizzix Hipster die. I layered all the pieces together with foam tape to give it some dimension and also used the foam tape to attach it to the card.
Hope you have enjoyed-
